Motion Picture Licensing Company (Hong Kong) Limited
MPLC’s fees are determined based on the circumstances of the particular market(s) and usage(s) being licensed.  Generally speaking, MPLC provides two different types of licenses:  (1) a title-by-title license allowing the limited use of one or more specifically designated works that may be advertised to the general public, and for which an admission fee can be charged; and (2) an ‘Umbrella License’ allowing the unlimited use of any titles represented by MPLC for viewings that may not be advertised to the general public and for which no admission fee is charged. MPLC fees for title-by-title licensing are separately negotiated in each instance depending the circumstances of the prospective usage, and in accordance with any particular instructions, conditions, or restrictions placed on the titles by our producer clients. However, MPLC fees for an annual Umbrella License1 are more easily classifiable for various markets, as follows:
