Data submission

Why does PMLL collect data on usage?

The submission of data is an essential requirement of every licence available from PMLL.
PMLL collects licence fees and apart from deducting the costs of company administration distributes all the revenue to its members as royalty payments.

To make accurate royalty distributions and for music publishers to subsequently be able to pay the correct songwriters and composers, PMLL needs to obtain accurate data about what has been copied under each licence.

PMLL has invested significantly in this aspect of it’s business and users under the PMLL licensing schemes are required to submit data about the copies that have been made under their licence online via the PMLL Hub.
