At FHDC we try and create a relaxing atmosphere in both our reception and clinical areas. One of the ways we do this is by having music playing.

To be able to play music we have to be licensed by both the PRS & the PPL. This ensures that those who own the copyright for their music, can receive an income when it is played.

Copyright in music is how songwriters, composers and music publishers – earn their living. PRS & PPL members license their rights through these organisation rather than doing it individually. This makes it easier and more efficient for those who want to use music to do so legally by obtaining a licence from PPL & PRS.

In terms of music copyright, there are people who write and publish songs and musical compositions, and people who perform and produce recordings. PRS deal with the former, while Phonographic Performance Limited (PPL) deal with the latter.

In the age of streaming music, music purchases have declined. The team at FHDC are please to be able to support the music industry whilst providing dental care.
