APRA and PPNZ have introduced a new joint APRA - PPNZ Licence for Sports Events that covers both the rights of our members – songwriters and composers, and those of PPNZ members – recording artists and record companies. The new licence takes effect from 1st January 2013.
Previously if an existing sound recording was publicly performed in NZ a licence was required from both organisations in order to play recorded music at sporting events. Our collective intention has been to simplify this licensing process and offer one joint licence to accommodate both sets of rights, acknowledge the contribution that live and recorded music makes to sports events and to ensure organisers have all the necessary permissions to use music legally.
Accordingly, APRA can now offer the one joint licence to sporting codes and organisations or individuals organising sporting events:
PPNZ Music Licensing Limited (PPNZ) is the New Zealand not-for-profit music licensing company established to obtain fair compensation for recording artists and record companies for their public performance rights. Representing many thousands of artists and record companies both locally and internationally, PPNZ licenses recorded music for public performance, broadcast and new media/on-line (communication). www.ppnz.co.nz
