Structure of sony

  1. 1. Four "major labels" dominate recorded music — Sony Music Entertainment, Universal Music Group, Warner Music Group and EMI — each of which consists of many smaller companiesand labels serving different regions and markets. Some professional musicians, bands, and singers sign with record labels, which are companies that finance the recording process in return for part or full share of the rights to therecording. Record label companies manage brands and trademarks in the course of marketing the recordings, and they can also oversee the production of videos for broadcast orretail sale. Labels may comprise a record group — one or more label companies, plus ancillary businesses such as manufacturers and distributors. A record group may be, in turn, partof a music group which includes music publishers. Publishers represent the rights in the compositions — the music as written, rather than as recorded — and are traditionallyseparate entities from the record label companies. The publisher of the composition for each recording may or may not be part of the record labels music group; many publishers arewholly independent and are owned by the artists themselves. In the 1980s, the "Big 6" labels — EMI, CBS, BMG, PolyGram, WEA and MCA — dominated the music industry. Sony bought CBS Records in 1987 and changed its name to Sony Music in1991. In 1998, PolyGram merged into Universal Music Group (formerly MCA), dropping down to a "Big 5". In 2004, they became the "Big 4" when BMG merged into Sony to create SonyBMG.
