PRS for Music collects and distributes licence fees for the use of musicial compositions and lyrics on behalf of composers and music publishers. PPL collects and distributes licence fees for the use of recorded music on behalf of record companies and performers.
PRS for Music and PPL are committed to simplifying music licensing for customers. As a result of this, both organisations have come together to offer joint licensing for some sectors. This was supported by Richard Hooper CBE and Dr Ros Lynch in their report, 'Copyright Works'.
Do you manage a factory, office or garage with four or fewer employees? If so, you may be eligible for the joint licence for small workplaces.
This joint licence is issued by PRS for Music on behalf of both PRS for Music and PPL.
Are you a voluntary organisation running a community building, such as a village hall? If so, you may be eligible for the joint licence for community buildings.
Do you run an amateur sports club, such as a local football club? If so, you may be eligible for the joint licence for amateur sports clubs.
