PRS for Music is the home of the Performing Right Society (PRS) and the Mechanical-Copyright Protection Society (MCPS). PRS collects when its members’ works are performed or communicated to the public. MCPS collects when its members’ work is copied.
We pay royalties to our members when their work is performed, broadcast, streamed, downloaded, reproduced, played in public or used in film and TV. We support them by influencing policy, supporting and hosting awards and events, and investing in new technology to ensure we’re fit for the digital music age. Our purpose is to grow and protect the value of music rights entrusted to us. Our code is to fairly and accuratley distribute royalties with market-leading transparency and efficiency.
