    PRS/ PPL license question

    We have all the correct licenses for playing and using music in school.

    We have an exercise book in both our hall and music room where we are asked to write down every piece of music used or played... because it's in the terms of the licensing. Is this right? Does it have to be done? It doesn't feel right and, because it's onerous, it doesn't always get written down.

    If we have to do it, it will be moved to a Google form for quick and easy logging, but I am wondering whether I actually need to bother.

    "Officially yes" same with DVDs/videos etc depending on your licenses.

    But will depend how much of the music is used/played, and whether it'll be usable under the normal "education usage" clause thingy I guess.

    In reality no-one does though, at least not to that extent

    Yes, we do it it with a google form only ask staff to add stuff used for assemblies, singing practice and wake up shake ups, after that it gets ridiculous to manage and maintain.

    That's exactly what I was thinking of doing

    I have never seen a clause requiring this for PPL or PRS licenses for education establishments. Only for those establishments which pay royalties per song such as businesses. As schools pay a flat rate, such documentation wouldn't make sense.

    The PPL conditions don't have this in anyway, only some of the PRS licenses. The joint PRS/PPL for communities license doesn't seem to mention it either.

    Give CEFM a call and ask them.
