Music Broadcast gets interim relief from High Court on FM radio

P K Mittal’s Music Broadcast Pvt. Ltd., has won an interim relief from the Mumbai High Court. The court has ruled that MBPL may go-ahead with the radio station till the Copyright Board adjudicates on a royalty case involving MBPL and Phonographic Performance Ltd. (PPL), an apex body of music companies. As per the court order, MBPL will also pay PPL an interim rate of Rs 500 per hour of recorded music played on Radio City.

Music Broadcast had moved the High Court seeking permission to start the FM radio station, till the Copyright Board decided on an issue relating to payment of royalty to PPL. Music Broadcast, which also moved the Copyright Board earlier this week, plans to start Radio City on July 3.

According to industry sources, the issue of royalty had come to a head, as PPL was demanding Rs 1,500 per hour of recorded music played, while Music Broadcast had offered Rs 250 per hour.
