Universal California Music
The world's most famous theme park is located right here in the backyard of Los Angeles, and Southern California now has one of the largest studios and theme parks in the world. Universal Studios Tour was launched in 1964, but it was dissolved in 2004 when General Electric bought the studio and merged it with NBC. It is home to some of Hollywood's biggest and most popular films, including "The Wizard of Oz," "Harry Potter" and "Star Wars," and is the second largest studio park in North America after Disneyland, California. With more than 1.5 million hectares of land, it is also the larger studio / theme park world in terms of hectares.
MCA was acquired by Seagram's in 1995, and the following year the company changed its name to Universal Music Group, with MCA continuing as a subsidiary.
UMG has also worked closely with several Vivendias business units, including CanalOlympia (Olympia Production) and Vivendi Canal, to support and develop the live music industry in Africa. UMG has launched Def Jam Africa as a stand-alone label on the continent with resources in five countries dedicated to discovering new artists, new music and new ways of life in the music business. This includes hosting forums and co-events with artists from across Africa, as well as the world's largest music festival, the Africa Music Festival, in Johannesburg, South Africa in 2014. It also agreed with the African Music Association (AMA) on a $1.5 billion deal to develop a global music distribution network.
The number of beaches in Southern California is only comparable by their diversity, but each beach has its own characteristics and personality.

When Rogers joined Prince in October 1983, he was tasked with tracking down tapes that Prince - often from West Coast recording studios - would make available as a producer of his own music. However, NBCUniversal still leases storage space from Universal Music, including a burnt-out warehouse in Los Angeles, California, where the company's headquarters are located.
After much back-and-forth, Spitzer's office and Universal agreed to a settlement in which Universal's top court blamed the Payola practice on independent promoters working on behalf of the company. Universal Music sued for negligence in the maintenance of the storage devices and sought unspecified compensation and damages. According to the lawsuit, Universal made employees call for fake song wishes, paid overhead costs for radio stations, had to pay hotel bills to play artists such as Elvis Costello, Elvis Presley, George Harrison and the Rolling Stones, and paid overhead and costs for the radio station. The action was a class action involving five named plaintiffs.
