    STUDIOCANAL acquires Paddington Bear intellectual property rights

    Paris, June 20, 2016- STUDIOCANAL is pleased to announce the acquisition of Paddington and Company Limited which owns all the intellectual property rights apart from publishing rights in Michael Bond's classic children's character Paddington Bear. At the same time STUDIOCANAL have acquired The Copyrights Group Limited which acts as merchandise licensing agent for Paddington Bear, as well as representing several other famous literary properties.

    By these acquisitions STUDIOCANAL takes full ownership of the PADDINGTON brand worldwide, including such activities as live entertainment, video games and theme parks.

    Strong and internationally recognised brands such as PADDINGTON BEAR are a key driver in the development of STUDIOCANAL and its parent companies CANAL Group/Vivendi, a global leader in the creation and distribution of quality content reflecting European culture.

    In addition to STUDIOCANAL's expertise in film and television production, PADDINGTON will benefit from the Group's wide range of assets, especially in the live show and concerts business (via Universal Music Group and Vivendi Village) and video games (Gameloft).
