Imagine a world without music…
PPCA (the Phonographic Performance Company of Australia) is a national, non-government, non-profit music licensing company which represents the interests of record companies and Australian recording artists. PPCA was formed in 1969, and grants blanket licences for the broadcast, communication and public performance of recorded music and music videos. By collecting licence fees and passing them on to the people who provide the music in our lives, we're not only protecting their rights and ensuring a fair return to them, we're making sure that they can continue to make music for us all to enjoy.
You could get individual sound recording licences from each of the record companies whose protected recordings you want to play. But there is an easier way to make sure you have the licences you need. PPCA's comprehensive ‘blanket’ licence covers the playing in public of original recordings released by more than 1500 PPCA licensor record labels, including the major labels EMI, Sony, Universal and Warner. A PPCA licence covers all recordings from the catalogues of over 20 000 record labels controlled by our licensors.
This means that a PPCA licence will cover just about every original sound recording you are likely to play in your business - an easy, cost effective way for you to secure your sound recording licence and enjoy the benefits to your business that music delivers. Add because we are a non-profit organisation, your licence fees are distributed directly to the sound recording copyright holders (after administration expenses), registered Australian recording artists, and the PPCA Performers Trust Foundation.
We currently license more than 50,000 venues Australia-wide, including clubs, hotels, bars, restaurants, fitness centres, cafes, shops, halls and dance studios, as well as radio and television stations. Visit www.PPCA.com.au for more information on how we can help you.
