PPL and MCPS collaborate on new dubbing licence

By | Published on Monday 27 September 2010

Recording rights society PPL is teaming up with the mechanical rights bit of PRS For Music – so MCPS – to relaunch the Limited Manufacture Licence for those making audio-visual productions.

The collaboration will allow certain customers to use any commercially released music under a blanket licence. With PPL and PRS working together, the licence will cover both sound recording and publishing rights, which makes things much easier for those licensees who qualify. It’s the third such collaboration between MCPS and PPL.

Confirming the new licence, PRS For Music Marketing Manager, Darren Haynes, said: “This licence is a great example of the two royalty collection societies working amicably together to create a solid, straightforward one-stop licensing shop, ensuring that music creators are duly paid for their work”.

For PPL, Head Of Dubbing Richard Stewart said: “It’s great that the two societies have been able to come together and agree a blanket licence scheme to make licensing much simpler for individuals and small organisations”.
