If anyone is going to ask, Creator/WarnerMusicGroup is entirely separate and has not been connected to Time Warner since 2004; it has, since July of 2011, been in the hands of Access Industries (although WB owns its own label [=WaterTower=] Music). Creator/WarnerBrosRecords, which has its own article, uses the WB name and shield logo under free license from Time Warner. Warner Books was also sold off in 2004, and is currently known as Grand Central Publishing after the Time Warner Book Group was sold to Hachette Book Group in 2006. Time Warner also embarked on a $165 billion merger with AOL (the most expensive media merger of all time) in 2001, which didn't turn out so well after the dot-com bubble burst and dial-up began to fall out of favor (Time Warner chief Jeff Bewkes described it as "the biggest mistake in corporate history" and "misguided in the first place"); AOL was sold in 2009 and is currently in the hands of Verizon. Telecommunications conglomerate AT&T announced plans to acquire Time Warner for $108 billion in 2016.

Warner Bros. (pronounced "Warner Brothers", and frequently abbreviated as "WB") is one of the world's largest and best-known producers of film, television, and video game entertainment. Known as "Warner Bros.-Seven Arts" between 1967 and 1970, and now legally known as "Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc." It is part of the [[MegaCorp massive Time Warner media enterprise]] which also has interests in cable networks like Creator/{{CNN}}, Creator/CartoonNetwork and Creator/{{HBO}} (in addition to many more). Time Warner was even larger than that in the past, with operations in books, magazines, cable systems and music (see below) as well as ownership of America Online, although that would be another entire page.
