In order for PPL to do so on your behalf, all you need to do is face the corresponding international mandate that allows us to represent you around the world (or in the countries you have indicated). We then do heavy lifting, so the collection of your international royalties is simple and simple for you. We have agreements with collective administration organizations (CMOs) around the world that allow us to recover your licence fees, which we pay four times a year. We have direct agreements with more than 95 international CMOs that cover more than 90% of the total value of global royalties. The royalties collected will be passed on to the overseas society, which in turn will pay the artists and music creators. Therefore, if international music is covered by a reciprocal agreement, you need TheMusicLicence. You must be a member of SoundExchange and fulfill an international mandate to be able to use this international pickup service. We are constantly adding new agreements, which increases the collection of international royalties for you. You`re becoming a member now.
PPL has entered into international agreements, sometimes referred to as “reciprocal deals” with 95 music copyright collection companies, including Phonographic Performance Company of Australia (PPCA) in Australia, Gesellschaft zur Verwertung schutzrechten GmbH (GVL) in Deutschland und AARC, AFM – SAG-AFTRA and SoundExchange (P-R) in the United States. Not all jurisdictions and companies with which PPL has agreements offer performance-quality performers; some offer performances to rights holders and performers, and others offer only performances for rights holders.   Not only do PPL and PRS for Music represent millions of musical compositions and recordings by British artists and music creators. They also represent international artists and music creators through more than 100 affiliates, all active in more than 150 different countries around the world through reciprocal agreements. A license is required by PPL when recorded music is broadcast in public or in public within its repertoire. PPL`s repertoire includes all recorded music owned or controlled by its direct members or by members of one of the overseas collective administration organizations with which PPL has a mutual agreement.  The PPL directory covers the vast majority of phonograms marketed in the UK. SoundExchange has collection agreements with counterparties in countries around the world.
These agreements allow us to collect and pay royalties to the artist and rights holders if their music is played in these countries. Currently, we have bilateral agreements with Sound Exchange (USA), PPL (UK) and PPCA (Australia). The music on your phone is played for your customers and classified as a public performance. In some cases, PPL and PRS for Music have agreements with Call telephone music operators who provide TheMusicLicence to you as part of the service they offer. The international network of PPL agreements with other CCMs allows royalties to be obtained for the use of recordings and performances worldwide.
