In 2013 PRS and MCPS-PRS Alliance realigned their brands and became PRS for Music and The Mechanical-Copyright Protection Society (MCPS).

  

 
Performing rights

 

PRS for Music represents members’ performing rights, whenever a piece of music is performed or played in any public space or place outside of the home.

Performing rights royalties are paid to a songwriter, composer or publisher whenever their music is played or performed in any public space or place. 

This includes TV, radio, online, in a shop, an office, pub or restaurant, at a concert, a sporting event and thousands of other places. 

The Performing Right Society continues to exist as a legal entity and company name. Royalty cheques come from the Performing Right Society Limited, and cheques can be sent to the Performing Right Society Limited. It is registered at Companies House.

 

 
Mechanical rights

 

The Mechanical-Copyright Protection Society (MCPS) represents members’ mechanical rights, whenever a piece of music is reproduced as a physical product.

Mechanical rights royalties are different to performing rights as they are paid to the songwriter, composer or publisher when music is reproduced as a physical product or for broadcast or online.

The Mechanical-Copyright Protection Society exists as a legal entity, company name and as a brand for physical products’ mechanical rights. Royalty cheques come from the Mechanical-Copyright Protection Society Limited, and cheques can be sent to the Mechanical-Copyright Protection Society Limited. It is registered at Companies House.
