Universal Music Group

Universal Music Group was so dubbed during an acquisition in 1998, but the collection of record labels and sole music publisher trace their lineage as UMG to 1898 when the National Grammophon Company established the Deutsche Grammophon Gesellchaft. It wasn’t until 1912 that filmmaker Carl Laemmle first introduced the name Universal, setting the film studio on a collision course with the music company. However, in 2004, UMG and Universal Pictures parted ways for good, allowing the music company to stand on its own as a separate entity.
