As any other licensed Collective Management Organisation (CMO), KAMP represents the rights of phonogram producers or producers of sound recordings, who own rights related to the copyright. KAMP only features where there is fixation of sounds into recording media, which can facilitate transmission of the sounds to the public. The transmission of these sound recordings could be either through communication to the public, broadcasting or by cable, etc. In each of the above situations, a license from KAMP on behalf of the rights holders is required to authorise the use of the sound recordings, as per the provisions of Section 30A, which grants KAMP the mandate to issue compulsory licenses and collect license fees on behalf of its members and non-represented rights holders.

Members assign the rights of their musical works to KAMP to administer. KAMP, in turn, uses the assignments to license individuals and businesses that use music for business or commercial purposes. This includes television and radio broadcasters, hotels, salons, coffee shops, shopping centres, nightclubs etc. KAMP collects these licence fees from music users, which are paid out to members in the form of royalties during annual distribution cycles (after administration costs are deducted).

By following simple procedures and paying the appropriate fees, individuals and businesses can use musical works administered by KAMP and this will ensure that our members are rewarded for the public use of their intellectual property.
