Musical Work Licensing on Wedding Videography and Montage In Singapore
MUSIC PUBLISHERS (SINGAPORE) LTD (MPS) represents musical works’ Copyright Owners or Administrators in Singapore.
MPS is pleased to announce that our members have jointly appointed RECORDING INDUSTRY PERFORMANCE SINGAPORE PTE LTD (RIPS) to provide administrative services and to collect licence fees on MPS’s behalf for all Wedding Videography and Montage uses, with effect from 1st January 2012.
RIPS is a collective licensing body representing many record companies in Singapore, who are the major producers and distributors of sound recordings in Singapore. As you may be aware, RIPS has currently been already administering the Reproduction of Sound Recordings as Background Music for Wedding Videography Licence on behalf of record companies effective from 1 January 2010.
Before this administrative arrangement between RIPS and MPS came into effect, an establishment or wedding couple intending to reproduce music as wedding video background music would have had to approach RIPS and MPS separately for permission to do so. With the implementation of this administrative arrangement on behalf of MPS Music Publisher Members, RIPS will now provide the one-stop licensing service to wedding videographers and wedding couples applying for the (1) Reproduction of Sound Recordings as Background Music for Wedding Videography/Photo Montage Licence and (2) Reproduction of Lyrics & Musical Works as Background Music for Wedding Videography/Photo Montage licence.
We are confident that this one-stop contact will expedite the approval for such licences, going forward.
In this connection, we seek your co-operation and understanding to direct all future enquiries and copyright clearances on the above mentioned usage to :
Email : firstname.lastname@example.org
Office Telephone at 65-6220-4166
Information and application forms are available for download at www.rips.com.sg.
Notwithstanding the above, should any clarification be required in the meantime, please feel free to contact us at email@example.com.
Please note that MPS continues to handle all other licensing of our musical works directly.
