Supplying performer data is now mandatory

PPL will expect recording rightsholders to provide details of:

  • at least one featured performer; and
  • at least one non-featured performer (or a positive indication that no non-featured performers contributed to the recording).

Providing this information to PPL ensures that performers, who have a legal right to receive equitable remuneration from the owner of the copyright in the sound recording, can be fairly paid for their work.

PPL will withhold the recording rightsholder share of revenue generated by recordings that do not meet this criteria until the required information is supplied. 

We have made some changes to myPPL so that you can supply the required information to us. Please see our updated guide on Supplying Performer Data for details.

If you have any questions please contact the Member Services team by phoning 020 7534 1234 or emailing
