Welcome to The Motion Picture Licensing Company

Motion pictures and other audiovisual programs have long been a great way to entertain and educate. But what you might not be aware of is unless you’re viewing them for personal, private use, legal authorization is needed to avoid copyright infringement.

Many organizations unknowingly expose themselves to penalties when they play audiovisual programs, whether movies, TV programs, or any entertainment video, for seemingly innocent purposes. Now with an Umbrella License from the MPLC, you can show audiovisual programs without violating Hong Kong's Copyright Ordinance.

The Umbrella License grants organizations permission to show legally obtained audiovisual programs without the need to report titles, dates or times of exhibition.

Just fill out an easy application or contact the MPLC for a license fee quote to secure an affordable annual license for unlimited exhibitions in all facilities.

Our Customers


Movies are a great way to keep my customers entertained if they arrive early for their bookings, or if they have time to themselves afterwards.  MPLC's Umbrella License provides a convenient and cost-effective way for me to do that, and gives me the added comfort of knowing that I'm not infringing anyone's copyright.
