PPL invite you to claim your royalties
6 September 2012
PPL will soon stop distributing royalties from 2004 and 2005. Claim your recordings before 15 October 2012 to avoid missing out on royalties that may be due to you.
A number of recordings from 2004 to 2009 are registered with PPL that do not have a rights holder listed and without this information PPL cannot pay out the royalties for these tracks. PPL have published a list of these unclaimed recordings, allowing rights holders to identify themselves and make a claim.
This exercise is particularly important for any royalties that PPL is currently holding for these recordings from 2004 and 2005. In 2013 PPL will close the distribution periods of 2004 and 2005 and no longer pay royalties for these years. This move is in line with the applicable six-year statutory limitation period. PPL members have until 15 October 2012 to claim royalties from 2004 and 2005.
To ensure you do not miss out on any royalties you are entitled to, please click here and download the spreadsheet to check if any of your recordings are included. If you see a recording listed that you control the rights to, you should make a claim. If your claim is successful, the royalties will be paid to you in December 2012.
