A quick history lesson: Miramax was also founded by Harvey and Bob Weinstein, who named it after their parents Miriam and Max when it was created in 1979. Then they sold it to Disney in 1993, which resulted in their departure in 2005 (twelve years after continuing to run the studio independently under Disney's ownership) to found a new studio called The Weinstein Company. Later on, Miramax started changing hands since 2010 and was more recently acquired by a Doha, Qatar-based media and sports company called beIN Media Group in March of 2016.
Anyway, I was expecting the Weinsteins to re-acquire Miramax from its former investor group when it went up for sale last July (albeit with a price of $1 billion), but became really disappointed when beIN bought the whole company instead in March. So what TWC needs to do in order to reclaim the Miramax brand is re-purchase a 50% stake in the company (with beIN still owning the other 50%) with help from investors, and combine their 520-title film library with Miramax's 700-title library; but if they still want the brand itself back 100%, then they can re-acquire the company entirely from beIN (also with help from investors).less
