Distribution deal: Image Entertainment has announced a partnership with Dark Horse Entertainment "to produce, distribute and share ownership of theatrical features, direct-to-video projects, animated content and soundtrack albums for worldwide distribution." This next part is interesting, if not entirely clear:

"The deal with Dark Horse is particularly important. Historically, Image has licensed content for distribution under the content provider's ownership. This agreement is a major step for Image in that Dark Horse and Image will now share ownership of the content. It is part of our natural progression in evolving from distributing licensed content to distributing content that is owned. This represents what I envision will be a model for future agreements."
