Yahoo in AOL takeover talks with Time Warner
Yahoo's board is believed to be planning fresh talks with Time Warner about acquiring AOL.
Yahoo discussed a deal with Time Warner earlier this year, but nothing happened.
There was speculation that Yahoo's move was part of a strategy to fight off Microsoft's attempt to buy Yahoo. Microsoft also tried to buy AOL after it failed to acquire Yahoo.

Yahoo recently signed a web advertising deal with Google to boost revenues. However that arrangement - which is due to start next month - is being investigated by regulators.
