Company Profile
Sony/ATV Music Publishing is the largest music publishing company in the world and is co-owned by Sony Corporation and the Estate of Michael Jackson. The company was originally founded as Associated Television (ATV) in 1955 by Lew Grade. In 1985, ATV Music Publishing was sold to Michael Jackson for $47.5 million. Paul McCartney, who had told Jackson about the importance of owning publishing, admitted he felt somewhat undercut by the acquisition because Sony/ATV Music Publishing owned the publishing rights to most of The Beatles' songs, although he did not enter bidding when it came up for sale in 1984.
