Why can one licence not cover all of my licensing needs?

PPL PRS Ltd licenses the use of music in public and the change to the law has no effect on the need to obtain such a licence. PPL PRS Ltd represents performers and record companies (on behalf of one its parent companies, PPL) and publishers, composers and authors (on behalf of its other parent company, PRS for Music). It does not control the rights in programmes (including TV programmes) which are now licensable, further to the change in the law.
