It’s a soundtrack to a lives which may lift our mood and have us humming along, but recorded music played in public by shops, supermarkets, businesses, restaurants and pubs needs a public performance licence as a legal requirement.

Business relationship executives for PPL, the UK-based music licensing company which licenses recorded music for broadcast, online and public performance use, will be attending two forthcoming business and industry events in Newham.

They will be at the Business Growth Show at West Ham Football Ground on Thursday, February 27 and the Business Show at Excel on Thursday May 15, representing the company’s 75,000 record company and performer members - many of whom are from or living in London - to help promote the value of music and the need for a licence, which in turn ensures that all those who invest their time and talent in making recorded music are paid fairly for their work.

Kirsty Tavakoly, BRE says:“Our work with businesses in London shows us that people really appreciate the role that recorded music plays at work, whether it’s customers in a shop or restaurant, staff in offices and factories, or callers waiting to speak to a call centre.

“As the government continues to acknowledge our world-leading music industry and its vital contribution to the UK’s growth and prosperity, and as performance rights continue to become a major income stream for musicians, there is a growing understanding of the value of music within the business community, which in turn helps us explain the role music licensing plays in supporting the wider creative economy.”
