BIOGRAPHICAL PROFILE

MPL Communications (which stands for McCartney Productions Ltd.) is the holding company for the business interests of Sir Paul McCartney. In addition to handling McCartney’s post-Beatles work, MPL is also one of the world’s largest privately owned music publishers through its acquisition of numerous other publishing companies. MPL is based in London and New York City.

It was founded on 12 February 1970, under the name Adagrove Limited, and by the time McCartney wanted to distance himself from Apple Corps and Allen Klein, it had changed its name to McCartney Productions Ltd. when it bought the rights to a film adaptation of Rupert Bear on 11 April 1970, the day after the Beatles broke up. McCartney stayed with Apple Records until it folded in 1975. The first mention of MPL appeared on Wings’ 1975 LP Venus and Mars.

MPL publishing owns a wide range of copyrighted material – covering nearly 100 years of music – by composers including McCartney, Buddy Holly, Carl Perkins, Jerry Herman, Frank Loesser, Meredith Willson, Harold Arlen and many others, with songs, such as “Rock-a-Bye Your Baby with a Dixie Melody” (made famous by Al Jolson), “I’m Glad There Is You”, “Blue Suede Shoes”, “That’ll Be the Day”, as well as McCartney-Lennon (Lennon–McCartney)’s “Love Me Do” and “P.S. I Love You” in its catalogue (Those songs were credited with McCartney-Lennon originally.). MPL also controls 25 subsidiary companies.

McCartney’s eldest daughter, photographer and photo editor Mary McCartney, runs the picture department.

In October 2006, the Trademark Registry in London reported that MPL Communications started a process to trademark McCartney’s name on saleable.
