  • Die Warner Music Group (kurz WMG) ist eine der drei weltgrößten Major-Label neben der Universal Music Group und Sony Music. Sie hat ihren Hauptsitz in New York und ist als Aktiengesellschaft an der NYSE gelistet. Zur WMG gehört auch der Musikverlag namens Warner/Chappell Music, dessen Geschichte bis ins Jahr 1929 zurückreicht. Der Hauptsitz der Warner Music Group Germany Holding GmbH ist Hamburg und verantwortet das Geschäft für Zentraleuropa (deutschsprachiger Raum und Osteuropa). Geschäftsführer für Zentral- und Osteuropa ist Bernd Dopp, der nach dem Aufbau des Schallplattenvertriebs der Handelskette "Schaulandt" in Norddeutschland 1984 als Product Manager im Marketing bei der WEA anfing, um 1997 die Leitung des Unternehmens zu übernehmen und 2001 zum Präsidenten der Firma berufen zu werden. Im Mai 2011 erwarb der russischstämmige US-Milliardär Leonard Blavatnik über seine Investmentfirma Access Industries Warner Music für 3,3 Milliarden Dollar. Im vierten Geschäftsquartal 2011 gab Warner einen Verlust von 103 Millionen Dollar bekannt, für das Gesamtjahr verbuchte man ein Minus von 205 Millionen Dollar. Grund sei vor allem der rückläufige CD-Absatz. (de)

  • La Warner Music Group (WMG), è una società statunitense che rappresenta una delle tre più grandi etichette discografiche (major) nell'industria musicale, le altre due sono la Universal Music Group, e la Sony Music. Fino al 2004 è stata posseduta da Time Warner; in quell'anno è stata venduta a un gruppo di investitori capitanato da Edgar Bronfman Jr ed è ora l'unica major indipendente quotata al NYSE. È presente in Italia come Warner Music Italy (per l'ambito discografico) e Warner Chappell Music Italiana (per l'ambito delle edizioni musicali). La WMG è stata la prima major a intessere una relazione strategica con YouTube, sfruttando a pieno i vantaggi commerciali derivanti dal contenuto generato dagli utenti. L'accordo con YouTube prevedeva il pagamento di royalties in proporzione alle visite ricevute dai video che contenevano musica di artisti della WMG. Nel dicembre 2008 l'accordo è saltato e la casa discografica ha deciso, con un provvedimento che ha sollevato molte critiche, di rimuovere l'audio dai video di YouTube che contenevano la musica di sua proprietà o di bloccare completamente tali video, segnalando violazione di copyright.

  • Warner Music Group (WMG) é o maior selo musical com sede em Nova York. Considerada o maior conglomerado norte-americano, é a terceira entre as três maiores gravadoras do mundo, as outras duas são: Universal Music, a primeira, e a Sony Music Entertainment, a segunda maior. A empresa possui as maiores e mais bem sucedidas gravadoras, incluindo os selos próprios: Warner Bros. Records Inc. e Atlantic Records. Em 2013, a Warner Music Group adquiriu um conjunto de ativos vendidos pela Universal Music Group sobre a aquisição da EMI Music Group incluindo a Parlophone Records. De 2008 até o momento atual a WMG vem recebendo críticas do mundo todo por censurar os vídeos do YouTube, o que tem diminuído consideravelmente sua credibilidade e a venda de discos de seus contratados. Em maio de 2011 o grupo Access Industries assumiu o controle acionário da empresa em uma negociação de 3,3 bilhões de dólares, assumindo uma divida de mais de 1 bilhão e 900 milhões de dólares. (pt)
