Whenever audiovisual content, whether films or TV shows on DVD/Blu-ray, downloads, streaming, broadcast television, pay TV and video on demand are being viewed outside the private home it is considered a ‘public performance’ where legal authorisation is needed to avoid copyright infringement.
MPLC licences these public exhibitions - the right for an audience to view all audiovisual content in a public location, such as retailers, waiting rooms, reception areas, bars & restaurants, coaches, activity centres, schools, children’s nurseries, care homes etc.In order to make it easy to comply with the Malaysian Copyright Act, MPLC is offering an annual ‘MPLC Umbrella Licence®’ which allows unlimited showings of all works from MPLC’s rightsholders without the need of reporting titles, dates or times of performance.
