Abstract.The object ofthe present research is the social relations arising in the sphere of modern recording industry music business. The subject of this research is organizational and legal features of Western record labels and their place in the global record. The author of the article offers data research for the major types of record companies established in the global music industry. The author examines such aspects of the topic as the management problems and PR in the recording industry as well as the legal status of the management of the label and the artist. The reliability, representativeness and originality of the research is provided by the author's using the systems analysis of a representative empirical data based on the theoretical and methodological premises of basic research.The theoretical core of the methodological basis of the research is the theory of communication with the broad involvement of knowledge of administrative law and management theory. The priorities are the general methodological approaches to the analysis of social phenomena: the concrete historical and descriptive methods, comparative legal, dialectical systems, structural and functional analyses.As a result of the study the author comes to the conclusion that the recording industry bears the signs of historical time and the regional-national characteristics that manifests itself in the structure of recording institutions. The author has also systematized types of recording companies and types of record labels presented in the form of a single conventional model. The main author's idea is embodied in the final thesis that the recording industry as the system is turned into a global meta-system of social communication which operates with its own specific rules and corporate principles. The novelty of the research is caused by the fact that the author determines the recording system infrastructure as a set of organizational structures and subsystems of musical and publishing corporations (record labels, companies and studios, plants for the production of gramophone records and other phonographic products).
