Warner Brothers is a company founded in 1923 which bought the rights to 1939's The Wizard of Oz from MGM sometime between 1997-1999. This is evident because MGM released the very first DVD release of the film in 1997 and Warner Brothers released the 60th Anniversary DVD in 1999. The copyright is set to expire in 2035.
