Members may have received letters from MPLC about their plans to introduce new charges for TVs in hotel bedrooms and suggesting that this has been agreed with UKH and other trade bodies.

UKH and other stakeholders have engaged with MPLC, who are looking to collect royalties for TV and film programmes shown in letting bedrooms. We believe MPLC has not demonstrated to industry (and our legal advisers) to our satisfaction the legal basis for collection, yet MPLC are now writing out to companies, so it is important that operators understand the issue.

We are currently seeking QC advice on this area of complex copyright law. We have consulted with MPLC over the course of the last 18 months on the rate which may be levied (which we have negotiated significantly down) should it become clear that there is a legal basis to support the claim; at present it remains uncertain.
