New Appointments 2018MACP is pleased to inform of our new appointments effective 1 January 2018.


Thank You & WelcomeWith a heavy heart we bid farewell to Ms. Chan Miew Lan who has served MACP since 1994. As General Manager, her contributions towards MACP are immeasurable.

From overseeing the impressive growth of MACP since its formative years, managing the staff under her care and serving the members of MACP well, her overall achievements are well-known not only locally, but internationally as well.

The guest of honour this year was YB Dato’ Seri Hamzah bin Zainudin, Minister of Ministry of Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism who was represented by his Deputy Secretary General (Domestic Trade), YBhd Basaruddin Bin Sadali.

Pn. Habsah Hassan, MACP Chairman gave a welcome speech which highlighted MACP’s activities namely Cipta Ekspres, Larian MACP and joint event with Arkib Negara, whilst highlighting the challenges faced by MACP this year and aspirations moving forward.


ColManagement 2016The World Day for Audiovisual Heritage is an annual celebration initiated by UNESCO to encourage audiovisual archives to showcase their precious collections and holdings as part of an international effort to promote the value of audiovisual heritage.

In conjunction with this year’s theme “It’s your story – don’t lose it”, The National Archives of Malaysia “Arkib Negara” invited MACP to organize a national appreciation and awareness day to highlight the contribution of songwriters and composers to the nation.


ColManagement 2016MACP held its annual songwriting workshop, Cipta Ekspres 2016 at Intekma Resort & Convention Centre, Shah Alam, Selangor Darul Ehsan recently. For the first time, MACP collaborated with the Faculty of Music, UiTM, Shah Alam to find the next generation of young composers.



MACP 2016
On 5 February 2018, the Minister of Domestic Trade, Co-operatives and Consumerism, YB Dato’ Seri Hamzah Zainudin, officiated the launch of Music Rights Malaysia Bhd (MRM) as the sole licensing body for collective music royalty collection activities in Malaysia.


On 17 January 2018, MACP had the pleasure of having MyIPO’s new Director of Copyright Division, Puan Rashidah Ridha Binti Sheikh Khalid at our office together with Encik Noor Aliff Bin Musa, the Assistant Director at the Copyright Division, and Encik Zulkarnain Bin Muhammad, the Deputy Director General (Strategic & Technical), Intellectual Property Corporation of Malaysia (MyIPO).

As informed to all attendees by our Chairperson Pn Habsah Hassan at the recent Annual General Meeting (AGM) held on 16 June 2017, MACP is facing a challenging time since receiving the directive from the Government to form a one-stop collecting body for all four licensing bodies (MACP, PPM, PRISM and RPM) in Malaysia.

The new body, Music Rights Malaysia (MRM) Berhad, was finally declared a licensing body on 1 August 2017. Although the licence allows MRM to collect retrospectively from 1 January 2017, we do not expect MRM to be able to catch up on full collection due for the year 2017 by this year end.

Therefore, we regret to inform all Members that MACP is unable to give any royalty advance or grant under the Music Development Fund (MDF) for the time being until further notice.
