PPL Licences

PPL Private Function Video/DVD Licences through the IOV

What do the PPL Licences allow me to do?
The IOV grants Licences in the UK on behalf of PPL for the dubbing of sound recordings onto video tapes and DVDs of weddings, christenings, bar mitzvahs and other family, domestic and private functions, subject to terms and conditions and provided the appropriate licence fees are paid.  These are in the form of holographic stickers which are attached to the videotape or DVD case (please do not attach to DVD face as this may cause playback errors).   PPL Licenses

The licence does not limit the number of sound recordings to be dubbed and it covers both music edited post production (i.e. the bride and groom’s favorite song) or picked up incidentally (e.g. from a disco). No distinction is made between whether a videotape/DVD is a master or a copy. 

A full guide to Copyright Licences for Wedding Videographers can be found by clicking HERE.  You will still require a MCPS Limited Manufacture Licence to enable you to record the Musical Works (music score and lyrics)  - which is the licence that the venue or officials will often require proof of.  These are available direct from MCPS - www.iov.com/mcps

How much do the PPL Licences cost?
There is a minimum order of five licences. All of the below prices include VAT.
5 Licences = £20.50 (£4.10 each)
20 Licences = £31.00 (£1.55 each)
50 Licences = £62.00 (£1.24 each)
100 Licences = £87.00 (0.87p each)


Why do I have to buy 5? 
This is subject to PPL’s minimum licence fee.  This will provide you with five PPL stickers.  These are not dated and they will not expire once you have purchased them .


Can I buy more than 5?
Yes - The licence is not dated, so you could buy a year's worth of Licences (or more) and use them as and when (they will not expire).  You are free to re-apply for a licence at any time throughout the year should you require further cover. 


First of all, please carefully read the terms and conditions on the licence application attached at the bottom of this article.  Then simply click on the 'Add to Basket' button opposite the number of Licences you wish to order.  We can accept all major credit and debit cards.  As soon as we have received confirmation of your payment we will dispatch your PPL licence stickers (normally within 3 to 5 working days) along with a VAT receipt.

Please note - Ordering Licences online constitutes your acceptance of the terms and conditions of sale.
