Their previous work with artists including Chimaira, Depswa, Switched, Korn, Limp Bizkit, Staind, The Used, Cold, Glassjaw, My Chemical Romance, Hed PE and Nine Inch Nails, amongst others, helped lay the foundation of the label.

Corporate Punishment was distributed by The Navarre Corporation in America, and Universal Music in Canada, until Navarre was purchased by E1/Koch, who became the label's distributor until 2008. After being released from their distribution deal with E1, the label went on hiatus until January 2010 when it was announced that Corporate Punishment had signed a Worldwide distribution deal with Trustkill Records. Shortly thereafter, it was announced the label went on hiatus, and Hazaert went on to form the INgrooves/Fontana distributed THC : MUSIC.
