Sublabels and vanity labels

Destitute often uses the term sub-term music to refer to a fingerprint or a company name (such as those within a group). For example, in the 1980s and 1990s, “4 and B’way” is a registered trademark owned by Laslandes Records Ltd. In the United Kingdom, a subsidiary of Laslandes Records, Inc. in the United States. Maintaining the central mark on Broadway 4 recording and marketed in the United States usually logo 4 and B’way, will be mentioned in the small print, “4th & B’way ™, Al Jazeera Records and Company.” Collectors discuss labels and tags to say that 4 and B’way are sub-brand or unique footprint “island” or “island records”. Similarly, researchers who choose to deal with companies and brands as equivalent to 4 and say B’way is the fingerprint and / or sub-brand for each of Laslandes Records, Ltd. And that affiliate subsidiary company , Laslandes Records, Inc. However, these complications are complex because of the mergers that took place in 1989 (when the island was sold to Bolegram) and in 1998 (when Bolegram merged with Universal). The island has been registered as companies both in the United States and the United Kingdom, but control brands have changed hands several times since the formation of new companies, which reduces the company’s excellence as a “father” Of any subsidiary

Vanity labels are labels bearing the imprint of the artist giving the impression of ownership or control, but they actually represent a list of artist / label records. In such an arrangement, control over the artist is nothing more than the use of the name on the label, but the greater can enjoy in the packaging of his work. An example of this brand is a brand owned by the ABBK neutron company while at the Funogram company in the UK. At a time when the artist Lizzy tear (under contract with ABBK themselves) appeared in the imprint, but almost almost dedicated to ABBK performances are still used for redistribution (although Funogram has cushion all works published on the label) .

However, not all of them dedicated to specific artists labels completely superficial of origin. Many early artists in their careers, and create their own labels, which are purchased later by a larger company. If this is the case it can sometimes give the artist greater freedom than if they were signed directly to the big label. There are many examples of this type of tag, such as Nothing Records, owned by Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails. And tomorrow Records, owned by Cooper Temple Clause, they were shooting Oh.m that (AAE) for years before the company’s purchase by RCA.
