Phonographic Performance Company
of Australia Limited

PPCA is a non-profit organisation that provides licences to Australian businesses to play recorded music in public. The net fees are distributed to record labels & registered Australian artists who create the recordings so they can continue to make music for us all to enjoy.

A DJ must hold a PPCA license to play copyright protected music in public. It is illegal to play music at your wedding without one. The PPCA do spot check of venues and if the DJ is unlicensed they can be shut down.
