PPL – PFVD (Private Function Video Dubbing Licence)
The IOV grants Licences in the United Kingdom on behalf of PPL for the dubbing of sound recordings onto videotapes, DVDs (and other physical media) 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, DVD or media case (please do not attach directly to a DVD face as this may cause playback errors).
The licence does not limit the number of sound recordings to be dubbed and it covers both music edited in post production (e.g. 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 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 and can be found HERE .
The cost of these licences varies according to the number of licences you purchase – but can cost from as little as £0.85 including VAT. Each copy of the production will require a separate PPL Licence.
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 required (they will not expire). You are free to re-apply for a licence at any time throughout the year should you require further cover.
