Dear J.G.D.

Freedom of Information Act 2000 – RFI20152110

Thank you for your request under the Freedom of Information Act (‘the Act’) of 10 December seeking:

"I wish to know how may times songs from the following artists have
been played over the last year on any BBC broadcast. I also wish to
know what these particular artists songs were used for and which
programmes used them. I would like the information to be from the

Under section 8(1)(b) of the Act, public authorities are not obliged to comply with a request for information if the request does not provide the valid name of the requester. The BBC is therefore not obliged to consider your request and will not be doing so on this occasion.

The Information Commissioner’s guidance with respect to valid names can be found on their website: http://ico.org.uk/for_organisations/free....

Please note that the Information Commissioner's Office will now no longer consider complaints regarding FOI requests without a full and valid name.

If you would like to submit another request, we would be happy to consider it once your full name is provided.

Yours sincerely

Information Policy and Compliance
