Returned (in part) to the original owner

Newspaper publisher E.W. Scripps Co. is selling the licensing rights for Charles Schulz's 'Peanuts' characters to Iconix Brand Group Inc. (owners of Joe Boxer and London Fog) for a whopping $175 million. Schulz's family will also gain 20% ownership of the unit that controls the characters. Schulz struggled for decades to win back the rights to his work, and this new "ownership interest" will give his heirs a far greater ability to moderate the way his creations are used.
