Sony BMG ceases to be

Sony BMG has vanished, vanished a surely as a fairy circle at daybreak - the Japanese partner has completed purchase of the German half, and has announced it now wishes to be known as Valerie.

Sorry, no - got the paperwork muddled. That was an announcement in a postcard from my Uncle Terence. Actually, Sony's music wing will now be called Sony Music Entertainment Incorporated. It's hoping we'll learn to love it as SMEI, though, which is almost an anagram of Smile.

So, that new name, then: a twisted smile with a bit missing.

They didn't fancy 'Sony Music Entertainment Group' then?

The name is not new. CBS Records was rebranded Sony Music Entertainment Inc. (SMEI) at the beginning of 1991.
