John DiMezzes and I were discussing who currently owns the Lone Ranger franchise. I know that Golden Books owned it for a time. He has uncovered something that says it is now owned by Classic Images. Anybody know the full story and who the heck they are? CCdiduseeimfly (3/4/03 9:23 am)
I believe that Golden Books AND Classic Media share ownership of The Lone Ranger.
Classic Media is a Limited Liability Corp (LLC) who is a licensing company for developing and managing promotions and sales of copyright owned characters such as The Lone Ranger.
The above explanation as good a guess as I can come up with.
