PPL / NEIGHBOURING RIGHTS CLAIMS
PPL is a society that collects royalties for master rights holders and performers on a recording.
PPL registration also allows Maori Music to submit your music for Film / TV Sync Promo as well as for themed compilation album and in-store music placements etc.
We will also ensure your songs are registered with Maori Music to be fully eligible for this.
PPL Royalties are also often termed Neighbouring Rights Royalties and can be administered for you on your own label's independent releases, either digitally or physically, by registering them below.
If you are a member of the PPL yourself, then it is your responsibility to ensure that your PPL registrations are correctly made by yourself, directly with PPL.
If your music was released by a third-party record label then it is their responsibility to ensure that PPL registrations are correctly made.
You should check with the label's administrators to ensure that you are correctly included within their PPL registrations.
