Re: 60s Batman show rights issues resolved!

For the first time in 40 years, Warner Bros. Consumer Products will be able to use the likeness of the show's stars, including Adam West, Burt Ward, Cesar Romero and Burgess Meredith, on everything from apparel to toys, home goods, publishing and promotions.
"The show's stars". What about guest-stars? I have always been under the impression that a lot of the issues with a video release dealt with some of the random guest-star appearances. I would hate to see the episodes butchered if released.

I'm reminded of the Northern Exposure DVD releases. I was a fan of the show, but didn't buy the DVD's because they couldn't secure the rights to use some of the music that they used on the show in the videos. And in some cases, that resulted in entire scenes being excised.
