PRS for Music and PPL Entertainment Licences
Owners of nightclubs, bars and pubs should pay attention to a recent case. The Phonographic Performance Ltd V Nightclub (London) Ltd  EWHC 892 (Ch) case shows what can happen if venues do not have the proper licensing for recorded music.
In short, Phonographic Performance Limited (PPL) applied for an injunction to stop a club owner from playing recorded music without the appropriate licence. This should have been a routine matter except the club owner ignored the PPL until it was too late.
