“Everyone has a price, the important thing is to find out what it is.”
Pablo Escobar

The Intellectual Property & Domain Name Estate of Pablo Escobar

 

Brought to market for the first time in history, a unique opportunity

to write the next chapter in the Escobar story!

 

December 2, 2019

Love him or hate him, there are few people or personas in history who are more internationally famous and more polarizing than Pablo Escobar. The founder and head of the Medellin Cartel is notorious, worldwide, for not only being the world’s most infamous drug lord, but also for his “Robin Hood” story of giving back tens, or even hundreds, of millions of dollars in ill-gained profits to the poorest of the poor in Colombia by building schools, churches, hospitals & other infrastructure.  There are many layers to the man and even more to the stories that surround him.  Look no further than the blockbuster series Narcos from Netflix as an example!  In his death, Pablo Escobar has become an international icon.

MediaOptions is a world leading domain broker and expert in domain value and intellectual property sales and marketing.  MediaOptions has been retained by the holding company Escobar Inc to market and ultimately sell the Pablo Escobar portfolio of intellectual property rights, including the PabloEscobar.com domain name and the intellectual property rights of the Escobar Family.  The rights have been secured and affirmed by Escobar Inc, a company re-formed by Roberto Escobar in 2014, the brother of Pablo Escobar and the former accountant of the Medellin Cartel for which Pablo Escobar is most famous.  Roberto de Jesús Escobar Gaviria (Roberto Escobar) was granted the “Successor-in-interest” rights to the Escobar Family name and his brother’s namesake, “Pablo Escobar”.  These rights are now being offered for immediate sale via MediaOptions.

While MediaOptions is sensitive to the polarizing nature of ‘Pablo Escobar’, it would be a mistake to overlook the opportunity presented by and wider scope of the implications of such an unique offering of intellectual property.  He (or she) who controls the rights, controls the narrative around the story of Pablo Escobar.  There have been a number of franchises worth tens or even hundreds of millions of dollars that have been built on the back of Pablo Escobar’s name, not the least of which is Netflix’s series “Narcos”. 

Culturally, we believe that society is now in a place & time, regarding the topic of Pablo Escobar, where we should certainly not forget the horrific crimes & destruction for which he is responsible, but there is room for curiosity, fascination, intrigue and even commerce, much the same way Che Guevara is both hated and celebrated in society and in popular culture.  We are keenly aware that some folks, specifically the residents, authorities & leadership of the city of Medellin, Colombia, are still to this day dealing with the fallout and consequences of Pablo Escobar’s reign. 

“Escobar also endures as an esthetic icon. His image, stripped of its incalculable evil, or perhaps as a challenge to new generations, adorns t-shirts, like Che Guevara. As what happened with the symbol of the best of the Cuban Revolution; those who wear the shirts don’t profess Escobar’s ideology. People wearing Escobar t-shirts in Europe might just as well use a Homer Simpson or Rolling Stones t-shirt, for they lack knowledge of the interminable trail of blood that he left in Colombia.”A quote from an article in Semana.com from 2008

However, as demonstrated by the popularity of the number of television series and movies about Pablo Escobar, not to mention books, documentaries, comics, games, restaurants, bars, etc, we firmly believe that the time is right to turn the page on this unique package of assets for a new custodian to write the next chapter, commercially or otherwise. 

Worldwide there are thousands of companies, individuals, organizations & commercial ventures that exploit the names “Escobar” & “Pablo Escobar” for financial gain.  They have done so unchecked and without consideration for the owner of those rights.  The purchaser of these rights will now have the ability to go out and enforce their rights, enter into numerous and diverse licensing agreements & monetize this “blue ocean” of assets and opportunity. 

“…this is a potential $BILLION enterprise or franchise.”Andrew Rosener, CEO of MediaOptions

It has only been since 2015 that Roberto Escobar, in partnership with Olof Gustaffson, and through the Escobar Inc company, that the intellectual property rights pertaining to Pablo and the Escobar Family have been secured and are now ready to be properly commercialized, enforced & defended.  We at MediaOptions firmly believe that in the right hands, this is a potential $BILLION enterprise or franchise. The obvious areas of monetization through licensing or commercialization include:  fashion, books, movies, television, promotional goods, parties, events, festivals, the cannabis market, CBD / hemp market, nutricuticals & supplements, hospitality & more!
