PPL builds royalty bridges overseas
News: 18th November 2010 by Louise Dodgson under Record Labels
PPL deals with the licensing of recorded music for UK record labels, artists, session musicians and the like. Over in the US the AFM / AFTRA Fund is set up to carry out a similar role so it's good news to hear that the two bodies have come together to make sure the people they represent can now get paid for their recorded work being used overseas.
When recorded music is aired in the UK, the PPL will contribute money into the AFM / AFTRA Fund to be distributed as royalties to their members, and vice versa, if UK music is aired on American internet or satellite radio the PPL will receive revenue to distribute accordingly. Nice.
