What is the TheMusicLicence?
TheMusicLicence from PPL PRS allows you to legally play music for employees or customers in your business through the radio, TV, other digital devices and live performances.
Previously, businesses and organisations had to obtain separate music licences from PPL and PRS for Music. However, we have now come together to form PPL PRS Ltd and launch TheMusicLicence.
One contact. One invoice. One licence.
Why do I need TheMusicLicence?
Under The Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988, permission is needed from the relevant copyright holders – those people who create music – in order to play or perform music in public.
TheMusicLicence gives you this permission, in relation to the vast majority of commercially available music. This ranges from grassroots and independent artists and composers through to the biggest names in the business.
Where does my money go?
Not only can TheMusicLicence benefit your business, it also helps to protect the future of music. After our business costs, fees from TheMusicLicence are distributed to all those involved in making music via our parent companies PPL and PRS for Music.
This means that those people who write, perform, compose, record or publish music are fairly rewarded for their talent and creativity.
How much does it cost?
The cost of TheMusicLicence depends on a number of factors including your type of venue and how you use music in your day-to-day operations, whether that be for background purposes or specially featured entertainment.
