U.K. Collecting society Phonographic Performance Ltd has signed reciprocal licensing deals with Greece and Ukraine as part of its expanding list of international agreements.

The London-based company, which licenses recorded music on behalf of 47,000 performers and collects revenue from public performances, has linked up with Grammo in Greece and UMA (Ukrainian Music Alliance) in Ukraine.

The deal with Grammo means PPL's independent record company members are now represented in Greece and across the Greek islands for broadcast, public performance and cable revenue. PPL will represent Grammo's repertoire of artists in the U.K.

PPL members are now also represented in Ukraine for broadcast and public performance revenue.

"We are very happy to conclude these two new reciprocal deals with Greece and Ukraine," says Laurence Oxenbury, Head of International, PPL in a statement. "We believe it is a further step in PPL's objective to ensure that the rights of our members are fully respected, protected and monetised in all territories."

Earlier this month, PPL forged agreements with RPA in Russia, Italy's IMAIE and Switzerland's Swissperform. The latest additions mean the society now has 40 such international deals in place.
