Zonophone

Profile:
Originally Zonophone Record, the Zonophone brand (trademark) was first registered in the UK in 27th May 1903 with the rights / ownership to the imprint later being acquired by The Gramophone Co. Ltd. in Great Britain.

In 1932 following the formation of Electric & Musical Industries Ltd. (EMI) through the merger of The Gramophone Co. Ltd. and Columbia Graphophone Company Ltd. (owner the Regal Brand) these two independent labels are brought together to form the Regal Zonophone label.

The Gramophone Co. Ltd. remained the direct owner of the (dormant) label until 1973 when the trademark rights / ownership were reassigned to successor EMI Records Ltd. who subsequently revived Zonophone in the 1980s in the UK, assigning several post-punk acts to the label. The label logo does not appear on any releases from this time and the company allowed artists to have vanity labels instead. After being discontinued in 1985 in favour of Regal Zonophone the label was used again mostly for reissues for about another decade from the late 1990s.

On the 27th April 2004 EMI Records Ltd.'s ownership and rights to the brand (trademark) is acquired by EMI Group Plc subsidiary EMI (IP) Ltd. (intellectual property holding company) with EMI Records Ltd. subsequently then becoming a licensee, this licence was cancelled on the 5th June 2013, however ownership and rights to the label were acquired by Warner Music Group, Inc. subsidiary Parlophone Records Ltd. on the 27th march 2013 following the formation of the Parlophone Label Group (PLG Holdco Ltd) which was created through the divestment of the EMI Group Plc.
