Maybe now that OUaT is a big hit they'll make a Fables show for the CW and it will be amazibad.

Fables rights are probably stuck in limbo somewhere. I guess Willingham read the script for the pilot they were passing around before ABC came up with OUT and it was hella bad.

Fables is a DC comics so WB owns the rights to it because WB owns DC and also half of the CW so a Fables show could happen.

And all that is completely irrelevant when it comes to getting a television show made and on the air. Studios (who make the shows) and networks (who air them) are not the same entity, even if they share the same name. For example, not all shows produced by 20th Century Fox Studios air on Fox network (see: Modern Family ; produced by 20th Century Fox, airs on ABC; in fact, it was never even pitched to Fox during development).

ABC currently owns the rights to a Fables TV show, which they aren't pursuing; before that, it was NBC (I believe). People have been trying to make Fables happen on TV for a while and nothing's come of it. Its not going to happen.

I don't think WB would ever straight up sell the TV rights to one of their properties. In the article it's said that WB and ABC were working together on the Fables show before things fell apart.

While everything you said is true(Look at AMC, the only show it owns is The Walking Dead), networks prefer to air their own shows rather than other studios. That way they get to keep all the money for ads and DVD sales. Once a show is passed on or cancelled by a network the studio producing it is usually free to shop it around to other networks(The Ringer on CW was originally for CBS)
