Vinyl Copy Code 

Our Vinyl Copy Code Scheme is an annual blanket licence for record labels that offer an identical digital copy of a release via a download code with the purchase of a vinyl.

How much does it cost?

The licence fee starts at £130 +VAT, although actual rates depend on the number of digital download albums redeemed per year.

To calculate your fee, simply match your projections to a band in the rate table below.

Licence Band

Please note, in addition to the Vinyl Copy Code Licence, you must already hold a PRS for Music licence to reproduce recorded music onto vinyl.
