Sears Radio Theater
According to U.S. Copyright Office website http://www.copyright.gov, most of the Sears Radio Theater shows are under copyright to a company called Conceptual Visions, Inc.
I've searched all over the web(google, white pages, etc.)and haven't found this company anywhere. This show might be a case of an "Orphan Work." This means that the work, although still under copyright, has authors or creators that cannot be found. Many of the copyrights were filed in 1979, and some don't mention a date for which they were filed. Revgen April 02, 2005, at 8:03 AM PST
