Billboard is reporting that The Offspring have reacquired the rights
to their Columbia Records albums and are auctioning off the rights.
That benchmark came to pass in 2014, when the group gained control of masters to six albums released by Sony Music. Now, according to sources, The Offspring is shopping those LPs along with its music publishing. The asking price? In the $30 million to $35 million range. (The deal could also include a new album.)
