“Can anyone tell us whether any of you have had experience of two organisations, Phonographic Performance Limited (“PPL”) and the Performing Rights Society Limited (“PRS”)?
PPL collect royalties for record companies and performers whose music tracks have been played in public. PRS is a completely separate entity, which collect royalties for composers and publishers for the musical and lyrical composition of a song.
How have you dealt with their requests to purchase licences for the playing of music in public, e.g. on radios or televisions?”
