From Scott Adams' blog:
Today United Media announced it might try to sell the licensing rights for Dilbert, Peanuts, and the rest of its licensing properties.And from Dilbert.com:
United Media has been handling syndication and licensing for Dilbert for over 20 years. They plan to keep the syndication part, which involves selling and distributing comics to newspapers. The licensing group, which is potentially for sale, manages licensing of Dilbert, Peanuts, and other properties to the third parties who put it on t-shirts and calendars and whatnot.
There's no way to predict if this is good or bad for me. It depends who buys the rights.
