More details are now available on the new MCPS licensing scheme for music used on DVD and VHS products that are not specifically music-related, for example, fitness videos/TV series etc. The Audio-Visual Producers (AVP) scheme has been launched after extensive consultation with the British Video Association. Under the scheme, licensee returns are ‘auto-matched’ against the MCPS database, enabling more efficient payments and backclaims.
