Who is MPLC?

MPLC has been the representative of Hollywood studios like Disney, Universal, Paramount, Pixar, Marvel Studios, and DreamWorks Animation for over 35 years. These studios and many more, have appointed MPLC to collect license revenue from non-theatrical venues – places that show movies and TV in public spaces but are not traditional cinemas. MPLC is now the largest non-theatrical TV and movie licensing company in the world.

Founded in 1985 by a former vice-president of Paramount Pictures and MGM, MPLC now has offices in 28 countries with our headquarters split between the UK and USA. Our UK home is in Eastbourne Sussex, while in the USA we are in Los Angeles, next to many of the Hollywood studios that we represent. MPLC is currently led by CEO Rory Shedden, who joined the company in September 2020.

About 150 people work for MPLC, with most of them dedicating their time to helping businesses and organizations understand the Copyright Act and the need for a Public Performance License, and then working with them to quickly become legally compliant by making the licensing process easy and affordable
