Roger Corman sells out?

Stephen Bissette writes an informative post about the end of an era. Apparently, Corman has given Buena Vista (a Disney corporation) rights to distribute 400 of his films, movies like "Little Shop of Horrors", "It Conquered the World" and his Poe films.
This is good in the sense that we'll probably get beautiful new reissues of some of these films. It's sad because now Corman is working with the major studios, something he hasn't needed to do in 50 years of film making.
I'm not all that upset about it, after all we could get some great DVDs of some great old giant monster movies. But Bissette writes well about it and about Corman's history.
