PPL simply would not be able to function without reliable and accurate data from its members. After joining, recording rightholder members must submit details of their recordings into our online database of recordings. The PPL Repertoire Database holds data for millions of recordings, including where the music was recorded, who owns the rights and who has performed on it.

It is the responsibility of the rightholder to add details of all the performers on the recording to the database to help ensure they also receive their royalties. Performer members can search the database and submit claims to be included on the tracks they have performed on.
