CBS Records was founded in 1961 by CBS Inc. It was set up to distribute releases from their US labels outside of the US. This was mainly for the Columbia releases. CBS Inc. couldn't use that brand outside the US because EMI Group owned the rights of the Columbia brand in most of the rest of the world, and Nippon Columbia Co., Ltd. had rights to the name in Japan.

CBS Inc. set up a number of companies to market the CBS releases. Examples are CBS Records S.A. in France, CBS Grammofoonplaten BV in the Netherlands and CBS Schallplatten GmbH in Germany.
These companies also used the CBS label to release records on that were made by local artists.

In 1988, the CBS Records Group, including the CBS and Columbia labels was sold by CBS Inc. to the Sony Corporation of Japan.
CBS Inc. granted Sony a temporary license to use the CBS brand. After Sony acquired the Columbia rights from EMI in 1991, they started using Columbia as a worldwide label in place of CBS. The rights to the CBS brand were returned to CBS Inc.

In 2007, the CBS Corporation, CBS Inc.'s successor, revived the CBS Records brand. The label uses CBS's television networks and its other mass media platforms to market their artists. They also release soundtracks of CBS television shows.
The new CBS Records label is not related to the former CBS Records business or its artists or assets, which were acquired by Sony in 1988.
