Information update to all members (music labels) of PPL

(also communicated by individual email)

11.7.2016

Dear Member,

Sub: EGM of PPL members held on 17.6.2016

1. Please be informed that, pursuant to the notice for EGM dated 17.5.2016 already circulated to members, the EGM of PPL members was held and conducted at Mumbai on17.6.2016. The Chairman delivered a speech, on current developments. Thereafter, all the 3 proposed Resolutions were passed and approved by show of hands by the Members. For your ready reference and convenience, we furnish below the text of 3 resolutions. The explanatory notes for each of these 3 resolutions have already been detailed in the said notice.

    Sub: EGM of PPL members held on 17.6.2016

        (1) “RESOLVED THAT pursuant to the provisions of Section 161(3) and other applicable provisions of the Companies Act, 2013 read with Companies (Appointment and Qualification of Directors) Rules, 2014, Mr. Sovan L. Saha (DIN: 01096343) in respect of whom the Company has received a notice in writing from a member under Section 160 of the Companies Act, 2013, along with necessary security deposit proposing his candidature for the office of Director, be and is hereby appointed as a Director of the Company who shall be liable to retire by rotation.
RESOLVED FURTHER THAT any one of the Directors of the Company be and is hereby authorized to do all such acts, deeds, matters and things as may be required from time to time for giving effect to the above resolution and for dealing with matters related thereto.”

        (2) “RESOLVED THAT, in accordance with the provisions of the Copyright Act, the rights for “Radio broadcasting” assigned to PPL by members in their respective individual transfer/assignment deeds with PPL includes FM phase III stations, but excludes the following: (i) digital/ internet/ online transmission technologies; (ii) “I.P.radio” (iii) one-to-one transmissions, through streaming or in any other manner; (iv) any other transmission/carriage which is not based on conventional radio waves or conventional terrestrial towers.
“RESOLVED FURTHER THAT the Board of Directors be and is hereby authorized to take all such actions and do all such things as may be required from time to time for giving effect to the above resolution and for dealing with matters related thereto.”

&        (3) “RESOLVED THAT PPL cease to grant & issue new licences, or renewals, for Mobile Telecom and Digital/Internet/Online sector w.e.f. 1st April 2017, in accordance with the provisions of the Copyright Act”.
“RESOLVED FURTHER THAT the Board of Directors be and is hereby authorized to take all such actions and do all such things as may be required from time to time for giving effect to the above resolution and for dealing with matters related thereto.”
22. In the context of the third and last resolution, some members suggested a model of forming a new umbrella or hub of interested member music labels. This model could work on single-window negotiation, but individual contracts; royalty could be paid by the licensee directly to the individual member labels, as per the agreed common rates. Such an umbrella/hub, if and when formed, would be voluntary and will be outside the aegis of PPL. It is possible that some PPL managers with relevant experience or expertise may be inducted by this umbrella/hub, and PPL may choose to extend some seed financial assistance if it so desires. It was proposed by members present that that Mr. S.L. Saha of the Indian Record Mfg. Co. Ltd., the new Director, will head an ad-hoc fact-finding expert group to research and deliberate on the feasibility and desirability of this model and discuss the same with interested members. Interested members may contact and co-ordinate with Mr. S.L. Saha directly.

Above is for your information, records and action, if any, please.
