Global indie music publisher Bug Music has acquired the worldwide rights to the publishing catalog of Saban Music Group, a subsidiary of media, entertainment and communications firm Saban Capital Group.
Bug Music will control the worldwide rights to SMG’s complete music library and further the company’s strategy of acquiring music copyrights licensable across multiple media platforms while strengthening its core assets and processes in the worldwide television and film markets. The purchased catalog includes material from children’s franchises such as the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, Digimon and Princess Sissi. The deal also encompasses a slate of theme songs, cues and scores from more than 90 television series, 3,700 television episodes and 100 made-for-television films and specials.
Following Saban Capital Group’s recent acquisition of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers property, Bug Music is anticipated to see growth opportunities in the newly acquired catalog.
