Includes unreleased live concert recordings.

Grateful Dead Productions (GDP) has appointed Rhino Entertainment the exclusive manager of its entire repertoire of intellectual property.

Under the license agreement, Rhino is responsible for the full range of Grateful Dead assets, recorded and otherwise, including the vast archive of unreleased live concert recordings, the band's official website (dead.net), all related direct-to-consumer and merchandise businesses, the growing digital initiatives and select band-related name and likeness licensing. The arrangement also ensures that Grateful Dead Productions will continue to be principally involved in all creative decision making.

The agreement does not include Grateful Dead music publishing, which will continue to be managed exclusively by Ice Nine.
