Last I heard the Taylorcraft rights had been bought by some investment firm in Mexico. A series of corrupt and/or brain-dead morons had owned the rights in recent years, one of whom concocted a huge AD on the wing struts (similar to the Piper strut AD) as a way to sell new struts. When I win the lottery I'm going to buy the rights from whoever owns them, and donate all of it in some sort of a permanent loan or something to the Taylorcraft Owners Club. A lot of people sit and pontificate about how it would be so great to resurrect those good old designs and produce new airplanes, but have no idea what it takes to get an actual new aircraft production certificate. That's a separate approval than just buy ing the type certificate rights. The correct path is to make new OEM replacement parts to get the thousands of derelict existing airplanes back in the air, which will create cash flow and brand loyalty, and then maybe. the profits from the parts will pay for setting up an airplane production line.
