I'm not really good at understanding how conglomerates work but Sony are only distributors for Days but they still have enough clout to make decisions on hiring actors ( eg ED). Is that right?

Regarding ownership, I don't know if they were ever bought out, but Corday Productions originally owned 1 percent of Young & Restless!! They might still. It was what was determined after the Bill Bell lawsuit, he had to stay on at Days for 5 years as a story consultant, and Corday Productions got to own 1 percent of YR.
Actually I think Corday Productions is in the credits of YR, at least it used to be.
They are still listed in the credits.....Corday Productions owns a small percentage of Y&R.
Also Sony doesn't own DAYS...but I believe they do own a portion of Y&R.
Bell Dramatic Serials/Corday Productions and Sony are the Y&R owners...but DAYS is 100% Corday Productions I think.
So if CBS buy them out, does CBS then have the their power? power to hire and fire Days actors or am I exaggerating?
