Who do PPL and PRS for Music represent?
PPL and PRS for Music are two separate collective management organisations (CMOs). PPL collects and distributes money on behalf of performers and record companies for the use of their recorded music. PRS for Music collects and distributes money on behalf of songwriters, composers and music publishers, for the use of their musical compositions and lyrics.
Do PPL and PRS for Music work together?
In 2018 PPL and PRS for Music joined forces to streamline part of what we do, coming together to launch
PPL PRS Ltd.
This joint venture means that businesses and organisations playing or performing music in public can now obtain a single licence, TheMusicLicence.
PPL and PRS for Music continue to set their respective public performance tariffs separately.
