About The MPLC

Public Performance

The Motion Picture Licensing Company (MPLC) is the leader in motion picture copyright compliance, supporting legal access to motion pictures across five continents and in more than 20 countries. We represent over 400 producers and distributors from major Hollywood studios to independent producers across the globe.

The MPLC was started more than 20 years ago by motion picture studio executives, including a lawyer with the MPAA (Motion Picture Association of America). Their goal was to help the public to view the work of the creative community in a wide variety of settings without infringing on copyrights. Today, we have unequalled access to Hollywood studios, as well as independent film makers, and have skillfully negotiated preferential rates for corporate and organisational use.

The MPLC licenses over 450,000 locations worldwide, including multi-national companies, non-profit organisations, national, provincial and local governments, schools, prisons, private clubs, health care facilities, child care programmes, coaches and libraries, to name a few.

Let us help you enjoy legal peace of mind.
