This means you own the copyright in the recording itself – different from the copyright in the song. This can involve independent artists and record labels.
So, rather than every sound recording copyright owner having to grant licences to every business playing their recordings in public, we handle the workload. We currently collect licence fees from around 50,000 venues Australia-wide, including cafes, bars, fitness centres and shopping malls, as well as radio and TV stations.
PPCA | Recording Artists' Licences
The Phonographic Performance Company of Australia is a national, non government, non-profit organisation that represents the interests of record companies and Australian recording artists.
We work together with our licensors, being thousands of Australian recording artists and hundreds of labels both major and independent.
While PPCA enables businesses to thrive by playing a repertoire of quality music, we also safeguard the rights of thousands of Australian recording artists and labels, ensuring that they receive a fair return for their music.
