Hello Garrett,

Can you tell some of us, less savvy about legacy TV media folks, what 
residuals are and how they affect and/or allow or disallow reruns. Seems to 
me, in order to produce a continued income stream, that the owners of these 
old shows would want to sell them as many times as they could. Why would 
blackouts have to occur unless the rights were currently leased in some 
Mark Casey

 biggest issue they had to deal with in terms of program
selection for their national networks was that there were some shows
that had already run out their syndication residuals in one or more
major markets, so they could not be run nationally without blackouts.
