Trial Licence to photocopy music

​Printed Music Licence Limited (PMLL), part of the Music Publishers Association, is looking to develop a licence that would allow leisure-time choirs to photocopy sheet music; the Amateur Choir Licence.

An initial trial of the license is running until December 2020 and we're looking for groups to take part.

How does the licence work?
