UK recording rights collecting society PPL has announced a new reciprocal deal with its counterparts in New Zealand, Phonographic Performance New Zealand, or PPNZ. It is PPL’s first such deal in the territory.

Says PPL’s international man Laurence Oxenbury: “Signing this contract with New Zealand shows the full extent of PPL’s reach around the world. We have agreements in many territories and are continuing to secure more. 2010 remains a strong year for PPL internationally and we are confident we will make further progress”.

PPNZ’s GM Mark Roach added: “Music is more accessible on a global level than ever before, which is why it is important to ensure that repertoire owners and makers are correctly and efficiently represented by music licensing companies worldwide. This agreement is a perfect example of how two territories separated by tens of thousands of miles can work co-operatively to bring about positive outcomes for our respective rights holders”.
