CAA was formed in 1975 from defections from the William Morris Agency, and there continue to be about four or five major talent agencies, although many reports suggest that CAA tends to be a dominant force in the industry. In 2009, William Morris agency and Endeavor merged to form William Morris Endeavor (WME). As of 2015, CAA and WME are the largest agencies in the business. In 2014 WME bought IMG Worldwide, a fashion and sports agency, for $2.4 billion. In 2014, WME had 4500 employees while CAA had 1500 employees. WME had a larger share of sports-related clients. The rivalry can get cantankerous: in one instance, the William Morris Endeavor agency placed dozens of ads around the city using Creative Artists Agency's red-and-white color signature with the headline being CAAN'T, a “playful nod to the CAA acronym.” The agencies compete by “regularly poaching agents and clients from one another.”
