WEA International Inc.

Profil:
Former umbrella record company for local WEA branches outside of the U.S.; predecessor of Warner Music International resp. Warner Music International Inc.. It is usually mentioned as an international (outside the US) copyright holder for releases on various Warner Music Group labels. The name is still seen on some recent releases from Warner Music Group (mostly from labels grouped under Atlantic Records Group division), but is going to be deprecated.
The company was founded by Nesuhi Ertegun and Phil Rose on August 25, 1970 under the name Kinney Record Group International. It was renamed to WEA International Inc. in 1972.
Sometimes printed as:
· WEA Int.
. WEA Int. Inc.
· WEA Int'l Inc.
· WEA International Inc
· WEA International, Inc.

Please determine the correct label based on the logos depicted on the release:
For releases with various designs of the WEA logo, use the corresponding brands WEA, WEA Records, Wea Music or Wea International.
Warner Bros. Records and Atlantic are among the other labels commonly administered by WEA International Inc.
In addition to the label and in accordance with what is printed on the release, company branches such as WEA Records Ltd. or WEA Music Of Canada, Ltd. may be added to the company field section.

1989 Company acquires CGD Messaggerie Musicali S.p.A. in Italy and MMG Inc. in Japan (like previously mentioned 1988 acquisitions also passed to EastWest label group).

Does anyone know what happened to the company name during the new warner music group releases from Warner records, Atlantic, and the other WMG labels? 🫤
