Sony ATV has returned to its original nomenclature Sony Music Publishing.

According to Billboard, the Sony/ATV entity was originally Sony Music Publishing prior to the globally renowned Sony/ATV merger.

"Sony/ATV Music Publishing is rebranding as Sony Music Publishing, more than 25 years after the original Sony Music Publishing merged with the Michael Jackson-owned ATV Music in 1995," Billboard stated.

Led by Chairman & CEO Jon Platt, Platt stated, "Returning to the Sony Music Publishing name reconnects us to our legacy and further unifies our mission and culture with the Sony Corporation," he stated. Our new brand embodies a modern vision to be an authentic reflection of the music and songwriters we represent," stated Platt.

But, I'm noticing a trend. Can you see it?

Most publishing companies now include “Music Publishing” in their nomenclature such is the case with Atlas Music Publishing and Lgmusicpub Publishing LLC, both globally respected indie publishers. Universal Music Publishing Group, a major publishing entity, also includes "music publishing" within its nomenclature.

With the advent of the growing indie sector and worldwide economy, could the independent music community had an effect on a global conglomerate subsidiary?

Innovation is key to industry and the indie sector of the music industry has had a growing impact on what was previously a highly monopolized sector of business, that being the entertainment industry.

We look forward to seeing how the global economy and market trends throughout these unprecedented times.
