Donald; Silents; Brooksie and everybody else you are absolutely right about copyrights. Unfortunately most of the Warner rights are not being utilised, just look at Sky and TCM in Europe. Fox archive rights are apparently different. Not many have been signed away for long periods or at all. So Disney has a proper chance to create a worldwide classic film channel, which would create competition to TCM and force them to look at their output more seriously. I have heard this copyright excuse so many times that I have stopped believing it. I think this is just an excuse for management laziness.

There is already a Fox Movie Classics already operating in Latin America and Brazil... if you look for their signal you can find it on the web. So far I have seen titles from Paramount and United Artitst (current MGM) which means that they already have deals in place to distribute titles.
