    Default PPL - childminders do not need a licence to play music!

    So there I was doing snack time this afternoon when Sarah 707 phoned me - she was very excited and saying 'We have done it, we have done it Penny'


    Once she had calmed down (a little) she told me that we had both had an email from the very helpful man at Public Perforance Licence UK

    AND - they have added a very important line

    A PPL licence would normally also be applicable if your sole use of music is to educate children as instructed by a recognised curriculum. However, although licensable under the terms of the CDPA (1988), PPL chooses not to license the use of its repertoire in a childminder’s home for this purpose

    So there we have it - after months of keeping on about this we now have the result we wanted

    By now I was just as excited as Sarah - and I think we both need a pat on the back.

    I have attatched the new factsheet - please do share with as many as possible as PPL want ALL childminders to know about this.

    Fab news Penny, and Sarah.

    I for one am happy I don't have to lose money listening to music in my own house.

    Thank you for this

    xx

    That is awesome Penny. See, all it needs is someone sensible to talk on our behalf in a calm way and progress is made. You are both stars, and a MAJOR loss to the NCMA!

    This is fantastic. This is why I believe that childminders can do all the things that the NCMA are supposed to do. Penny I have jotted down some ideas of ways to move things forward following your post on the thread on you leaving the NCMA were I offered my help. I will pm them to you over the weekend. Massive thank you and Sarah for your hard work and persistence.

    It is a PPL document - NCMA have also been working with PPL and yes they have a copy.

    NCMA have told PPL they will only be issuing to their members - PPL have told NCMA that Sarah and I will be postingon forums with PPL's full permission.

    I am guessing that NCMA will not be giving me any credit this time round!
