Welcome to The Motion Picture Licensing Company

Motion pictures and other audiovisual programmes have long been a great way to entertain and educate. But what you might not be aware of is unless you’re viewing them for personal, private use, legal authorisation is needed to avoid copyright infringement.

Many organisations unknowingly expose themselves to penalties when they play audiovisual programmes, whether movies, TV programs, or any entertainment video, for seemingly innocent purposes. Now with an Umbrella Licence® from the MPLC, you can show audiovisual programmes without violating the Malaysian Copyright Act.

The Umbrella Licence grants organisations permission to show legally obtained audiovisual programs without the need to report titles, dates or times of exhibition.

Just fill out an easy application or contact the MPLC for a licence fee quote to secure an affordable annual licence for unlimited exhibitions in all facilities.
