MACP ROYALTIES DISTRIBUTION UPDATE
Most countries in the world are going through an unprecedented time with COVID 19. Malaysia is no exception. Every sector of our economy has been affected by this pandemic resulting in loss of income, unemployment and business closures. It has been difficult for everyone.

MACP too, has had its own challenges.

During the Movement Control Order (MCO), our operations were interrupted. This has affected the documentation and distribution process of royalty income.

As a result, the distribution of royalties to our members is expected to be in early October 2020.

We are doing our best to lessen the burden of the times, including:

1) distributing digital royalties at the end of March this year;
2) working with the Government to get financial aid for our members; and
3) giving out MACP’s Covid19 contribution to members last May.

As an additional initiative, we are now open for interim (advance) royalty applications especially for first-time applicants. Email us at general@macp.com.my before 16 August 2020. Terms and conditions apply.

On behalf of the Board of Directors and all at MACP, please keep safe and continue with your creative work. There will be brighter days ahead.

Please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any queries.

Yours truly,

Justin Johari
Acting General Manager


MAKLUMAT TERKINI MENGENAI PENGAGIHAN ROYALTI MACP
Kebanyakan negara di dunia sedang melalui satu krisis pada skala yang belum pernah terjadi sebelumnya melalui COVID 19. Malaysia tidak terkecuali. Setiap sektor ekonomi amat terkesan oleh wabak ini, mengakibatkan hilang punca pendapatan, pengangguran dan penamatan perniagaan. Keadaan yang sukar untuk semua orang.

MACP juga, menghadapi cabarannya tersendiri.

Ketika tempoh Perintah Kawalan Pergerakan (PKP), operasi kami telah tergendala. Ini telah memberikan kesan kepada proses dokumentasi dan pengagihan royalti.

Akibatnya, pengagihan royalti kepada para ahli MACP dijangkakan akan berlaku pada awal bulan Oktober 2020.

MACP berusaha dengan gigih untuk mengurangkan beban di luar jangkaan ini, termasuk:

1) pengagihan royalti digital pada akhir bulan Mac tahun ini;
2) bekerjasama dengan pihak Kerajaan untuk mendapatkan bantuan kewangan untuk ahli; dan
3) memberikan ahli sumbangan Covid19 syarikat MACP pada bulan Mei yang lalu.

Sebagai inisiatif seterusnya, MACP telah membuka untuk permohonan royalti interim (pendahuluan), terutamanya bagi ahli yang pertama kali memohon. Sila email kami di general@macp.com.my sebelum 16 Ogos 2020. Tertakluk kepada terma dan syarat.

Bagi pihak Lembaga Pengarah dan semua di MACP, semoga anda sentiasa berjaga dan teruskan berkarya. Masa depan yang cerah pasti akan datang dengan izinNya.

Jika terdapat sebarang kemusykilan, anda dijemput untuk menghubungi kami.

Yang benar,

Justin Johari
Pemangku Pengurus Besar

MACP, PPM AND RPM RESUME LICENSING WITH DISSOLUTION OF MRM
10th July 2020, Kuala Lumpur - Music Authors’ Copyright Protection (MACP) Berhad (MACP), Public Performance Malaysia Sdn. Bhd. (PPM) and Recording Performers Malaysia Berhad (RPM) (“Licensing Bodies”) have today announced the dissolution of Music Rights Malaysia Berhad (MRM).

MRM was incorporated by the Licensing Bodies as a joint venture non-profit company to carry out collective music licensing effective 1 January 2017 after receiving the requisite declaration by the Intellectual Property Corporation of Malaysia (MyIPO). Unfortunately, MRM was unable to function effectively as a collective music licensing body due to the insurmountable challenges in getting a consensus between the Licensing Bodies on material operational matters resulting in MRM not being able to move forward. After long extended negotiations and deliberations, the Licensing Bodies came to the conclusion that it would be in the best interest of all rightsholders to dissolve MRM and for the Licensing Bodies to license music users independently as before. Music licensees can also expect a better level of service from the 3 Licensing Bodies with this new arrangement. As a result of this dissolution, MRM will be terminating its operations and returning its licensing mandate back to its constituent Licensing Bodies. This intention was conveyed to MyIPO and The Ministry of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs.

In this regard, music users are advised that all existing licensing contracts currently signed with MRM will be terminated, and the Licensing Bodies will resume as the new contractual parties, according to the mandate granted by their respective members. The targeted start date of this new licensing arrangement is 1 May 2020.

With the new licensing arrangement, each Licensing Body will set its own tariffs, and our friendly licensing officers and authorized agents will be going to the ground to reach out to our valued licensees and the public to further explain on this new licensing arrangement.

We will ensure that this new arrangement will be carried out smoothly in compliance with any law and regulation.

Once this arrangement is in place, MACP, PPM and RPM can resume their roles of independently collecting fair remuneration for the use of music on behalf of their respective rightsholders while at the same time better serving the needs of commercial music users.
