When a track is recorded there can be several performers on the final recording who are entitled to claim royalties from PPL for their audible contributions (such as vocals or instrumentation). Even though studio producers may not make audible contributions on a recording they may still, in certain circumstances, be eligible to receive royalties from PPL for their non-audible contributions, such as conducting or similar musical direction, made during the live recording process.
PPL’s Eligible Studio Producer Form is an optional tool designed to help studio producers claim royalties from PPL. The form must be completed by both parties and submitted to PPL for a claim to be made.
In the past supplying this confirmation to PPL has not been administratively easy for studio producers. However, PPL's new Eligible Studio Producer Form offers a simple, practical solution for studio producers to claim royalties. The form must be completed by both parties and submitted to PPL for a claim to be made.
