With 35 years of experience, MPLC is the global expert in public licensing for TV and film. We are on a mission to drive growth across the hospitality industry through compliant use of world-class entertainment, while playing a key role in funding the next generation of film and television.
Businesses often use TV and film in public spaces. Hotels, bars and restaurants show content to enhance the customer experience and, behind the scenes, offer relaxing spaces for off-duty staff. But by law, great shows can only be shared in these public settings if the creators give their permission. MPLC provides a simple, affordable licence to businesses, so they can show content whenever they want with peace of mind.
The royalties we collect are then shared with the creators - representing thousands of studios and producers around the world, from major Hollywood studios to small, local and independent companies - and go on to support the future of entertainment we know and love.
As proud champions of the hospitality industry, we support businesses that want to create a winning environment for customers and staff - helping them, and the creators of the content they show, to thrive.
