Many broadcasters already have a license and in these cases, it is not normally necessary
for a production company to obtain a separate license.
For some uses, there are fixed tariffs - for example:
- Theatrical productions A typical rate until March 2011 was £2.20 per performance
for use of a 0.01-2.5 minute clip;
- Background music/telephone hold music: £131.26 excl. VAT for 1-5 lines;
- Amateur theatrical performances: £52.55 per annum.
Please check with PPL for the latest rate. In all cases, use of materials published
by TP4M requires the user to inform us of the name(s) of the work(s) being used and
the application. This may be done by email to email@example.com or by writing
to us at the contact address.
To use any of the works published by TP4M for broadcast or stage productions, it
is necessary to obtain a PPL license (www.ppluk.com).
