Howard Jones PRS hits live streaming (45) RE: PRS hits live streaming 31 Jan 21


I'm one PRS member who has complained to them. Fortunately I don't depend on income from either performing or writing for my living. The irony is that this actually disadvantages PRS members who put on their own online shows. Non-members who perform only their own compositions don't need a licence, but members must have a licence as RPS has the collection rights, and then wait at least 6 months for PRS to pay them back their own money in the form of royalties.

I'm not sure another organisation is the way to go. We don't want the situation which appears to prevail in the US where there are several performing rights organisations and a venue has to get licences from all of them to be sure all the repertoire likely to be performed will be covered.
