IAC: Institute of Amateur Cinematographers
If you wish to use recorded music etc. for your sound tracks then you need a licence via the IAC. Two licences are required as follows:
1. MCPS (Mechanical-Copyright Protection Society Ltd) fee £7.13 per annum including vat
2. BPI (British Phonographic Industry) fee £1.41 including vat.
It sounds complicated but it is not at all.
Go onto the IAC website, click on IAC:Copyright, this explains all.
Click on “Download Application Form”. Fill it in and send it off with the fee. Job done.
There is some current discussion about a third licence being required but most people are choosing to ignore this at the moment.
