About Us ::  Our Role
The Indian Phonographic Industry (IPI), the Association of Phonogram Producers, was established in 1936, and it was instrumental in finalising the Broadcasting Licence arrangement in India. Subsequently, IPI members decided to form a specialised body to administer their Public Performance and Broadcasting Rights, and so PPL came into being in 1941.

The Phonographic Performance Ltd. (PPL) owns, as assignee, and exclusively controls public performance rights and radio broadcasting rights in more than 7 lakh songs (sound recordings) in Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Bengali, Punjabi, Marathi, Malayalam, Bhojpuri and other Indian languages, including both film and non-film songs such as Ghazals, devotional, folk, pop, classical, etc, of its more than 250 members, who are music labels.

All licences granted and issued by PPL are non-exclusive, conditional and for limited purpose and period. There is no transfer of effective title, control, possession or custody or 'right to use' of copyrights, which vests solely with the owner.
