* ''MaxHeadroom'' suffered this in part. Although the original TV movie was released on DVD, the subsequent two-season series had not been, and was only partially available in edited form on VHS and Japanese Laserdisc releases. Despite the existence of a substantial online market in bootleg compilations, a DVD release was not available until Shout! Factory released the full series in 2010. The Shout [=DVD=]s include the American TV series, but not the original TV movie. Granted, the pilot is a condensed version of that film, but....

* Ironically enough, ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'''s debut games ''VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue'' used to suffer from this in the UsefulNotes/Nintendo3DS era due to the Game Boy Advance and DS/DS Lite being discontinued, ruling out the remakes (''[=FireRed=]'' and ''[=LeafGreen=]'' on the [=GBA=]), and the original games not being released on 3DS UsefulNotes/VirtualConsole (likely because trading, which is a major, nearly mandatory part of the game, can't be done without a Link Cable, a peripheral exclusive to the Game Boy [Color]). With the Johto and Hoenn gap being closed on remakes playable on the Nintendo 3DS, they were the only Pokémon games not playable on it in either original or remade form. However, they were released on 3DS Virtual Console (with trading and multiplayer battling intact, now done through local wireless connections as opposed to Link Cables) for their [[MilestoneCelebration 20th anniversary]] on February 27, 2016. ''Yellow'' also suffered from this problem even worse, as almost none of its differences were implemented into the remakes, but it too was re-released. The following year, the original forms of ''VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver'' were released on the eShop in September 2017, once again being able to trade and battle wirelessly (the former also being possible with ''Red'', ''Blue'', and ''Yellow'' once the Time Capsule is unlocked), as well as retaining the ability to use Mystery Gift via the system's built-in infrared port (a feature the 3DS shares with the UsefulNotes/GameBoyColor, as the UsefulNotes/GameBoyAdvance dropped the infrared port).

* For a long time, the legendary TearJerker of a music video for the [[DixieChicks Dixie Chicks']] "Top Of the World" was next to impossible to find owing not only to its radio unfriendly length of 6 minutes, but also the controversy surrounding them at the time. However, in December of 2015, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CxRiVkdO9VQ it was finally reuploaded to youtube]].

* ''Film/{{The Muppet Christmas Carol}}'' is widely available, its most recent release being a Blu-Ray in 2012. But most home video releases don't include the deleted "When Love Is Gone" song. It was removed from the theatrical cut to director Brian Henson's strong objections, but restored for the 1993 VHS and laserdisc. The [=DVDs=] from 2002, 2005, and 2012 include the full-length cut, but it was not in widescreen -- only the theatrical cut was. The aforementioned Blu-Ray, and the Digital HD version, don't have the song at all. Thankfully, the "When Love Is Gone" sequence would eventually make its HD debut as an extra on the movie's [=iTunes=] release.

* ''Comicbook/FlexMentallo'' was originally introduced in an issue of ''Comicbook/DoomPatrol'' as a parody of the well-known "Insult That Made a Man out of Mac" comic-strip bodybuilding ads by Charles Atlas. Later on, in 1996, he got a mini-series of his own, written by his creator Creator/GrantMorrison and drawn by Frank Quitely. Some time after the mini-series came out someone (reportedly a fan who [[WhyFandomCantHaveNiceThings thought they'd be flattered]]) informed the Charles Atlas company about Flex, and they promptly sued DC (the publisher of ''Doom Patrol'' and ''Flex Mentallo'') for trademark infringement. Since Flex, as an obvious parody, was legally considered to be a case of FairUse, the lawsuit was [[http://query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpage.html?res=9500E2DC1430F932A0575BC0A9669C8B63 settled in favour of DC]]. However, even though the creative team of Morrison and Quitely later released some critically praised and popular series (''ComicBook/AllStarSuperman'' being the best known of them), DC took many years to collect the ''Flex Mentallo'' mini. The origin story of Flex (where the Charles Atlas connection is much more obvious than in the mini-series) was actually collected in a 2006 ''Doom Patrol'' trade paperback, so clearly there was no remaining legal obstacle, but it took until April 2012 for the mini-series to be collected.. Only 16 years after it originally came out. The legal problems over Flex are probably why it took until the mid-2000s for the Morrison ''Doom Patrol'' run itself to get a proper trade paperback series, despite its high reputation.
