High Court dismisses PPCA appeal on music in fitness
Fitness Australia has reported that the PPCA's application to the High Court to appeal the Federal Court decision in relation to the licence Scheme for the use of music in group fitness classes has been dismissed.
PPCA (the Phonographic Performance Company of Australia), Australia's recording industry association, made an application to appeal a December Australian Federal Court Ruling on proposed increases to the Fitness Industry Tariff.
At that time the Australian Federal Court overturned a ruling that would have increased Australian health club music licensing fees by 1,500%, raising the costs from $0.97 per exercise class to $15 per class.
Throughout court proceedings the current Licence Scheme for Tariff V has remained in place.
