I thought Perry Mason was a CBS/Paramount property. Did they sell the rights to Warner for the new series on HBO? I’m confused

Until someone comes in and corrects me I'm going to figure that the property overall is owned by the family of Erle Stanley Gardner, and they can license it out to whomever they please, while ViacomCBS owns the 50s/60s show and the TV movies, but not the character.

Makes sense now. Thank you
