HistoryEdit

Silver Vision had exclusively released the WWE Tagged Classics range, a unique range of DVDs that are exempt from the well-documented legal restraints imposed by the federal lawsuits initiated by the World Wildlife Fund in the year 2002 which prohibit the referencing and use of the scratch logo and initials "WWF", with only the DVD covers and most DVD menu screens of the "Tagged Classics" displaying the initials "WWE".

In July 2012 WWE came to a new agreement with the World Wildlife Fund which permitted the WWE to no longer censor the WWF scratch logo or WWF initials when spoken. The WWE however cannot use any old World Wrestling Federation logos in the present day on retro programming for example, only in archival footage.[1]

The two companies will parted ways on 31 December 2012 with 'nWo: The Revolution' DVD and Blu-ray will be the final Silver Vision release.

On 19 November it was announced that FremantleMedia Enterprises would be the new WWE Home Video distributor for the UK and Europe.[2]

Clear Vision also releases UFC, Gaiam, NBA, Gormiti and Marvel Animation DVDs at retail and through its websites. Shortly after losing distribution rights Clear Vision took over as distributor of TNA Wrestling DVDs in the UK and Europe. In December 2013 the company called in the Administrators.
