But is Paramount really the one making $$ off the T-shirts? I thought that was CBS.
CBS is the one making money from T-shirts using images from the television series, but Paramount must be making money from licensed products based on the motion pictures.

A recent article in Variety about Paramount licensing most of their back catalog to Warner Bros. for home video release noted that the Star Trek films were one of about 100 properties the studio chose to retain the rights to because they performed so well on home video. They're definitely making money from the franchise.
