The volume of rights acquired includes approximately 15,000 band rights and 50 films as well as the music labels Plastic City, Harthouse, Mole Listening Pearls, Noom Records, fine Audio Recordings and the film labels Darling Berlin and M-Square Pictures.
The asset deal also includes UCM.ONE‘s theatrical distribution Darling Berlin, which will operate under the name UCM.ONE in the future.
