A: The cost to acquire the copyright for Inspector Gadget will depend on various factors such as the current owner, the terms of the acquisition, and negotiations between parties. It is recommended to consult with a qualified intellectual property attorney or agent who can assist in identifying the current copyright owner and negotiating the terms of acquisition.

The copyright for Inspector Gadget is likely owned by either the original creators or a production company that purchased the rights. Researching the history of the show and contacting the appropriate parties may provide more information on how to acquire the copyright.

It is important to note that owning the copyright does not automatically give the owner the right to distribute the content without permission from other parties involved in the production, such as the original voice actors or music composers. It is recommended to consult with a qualified entertainment attorney to ensure all necessary licenses and permissions are obtained before distributing the content.
