Track Registration Form

This form must be completed for every recording/video for which you are claiming rights under this distribution scheme.

Eligibility Criteria:

(1) members of an act or band performing as a band of equal billing (and entitled to collection of performance fees) will share in the payment in equal shares unless PPCA is advised to the contrary by all members of the band; and

(2) in the case of a featured artist (entitled to collect 100% of any artist or licence royalty payment by a record company) having various supporting musicians, such a featured artist will be the SOLE PARTY entitled to apply to join the direct distribution scheme and will be responsible for payment to their supporting musicians according to the contractual arrangements, if any, existing between them.

Please note, registrations submitted under PPCA’s Artist Direct Distribution Scheme should reflect the performance splits between the “featured” recording artists of the track. In order to be considered a performer on a recording, you need to have made an audible contribution, and be a “featured” recording artist, i.e. entitled to an ongoing royalty as a performer under the recording agreement. Songwriters, session musicians, producers and any persons who remix or sequence Australian recordings (e.g., recordings remixed and/or sequenced by DJs) are not eligible to join the Artist Distribution Scheme. If you are a session musician, producer or a DJ and have a contractual agreement with the artists to share in distributable licence fees any resulting contractual and administrative issues are to be resolved between yourselves and the artists.

In the event that PPCA has any queries regarding your eligibility to claim for a recording, we may confirm with the relevant Licensor/record label.

If you want your new recordings to be included in this year’s round of royalty payments, you need to have them registered by 31 August.

Artist Details

Must be the artist's real name, not a band or performer name.

Release Details

If you retain the rights to the sound recording yourself (i.e. you have not licensed them to a label) you will need to register with us as a Licensor.
After completing this application, please proceeed to the Licensor Registration Form.
