PRS for Music Response to EU Framework Directive on Collective Rights Management 

Robert Ashcroft Chief Executive PRS for Music said:
“The Commission has outlined a new framework for consistent and high standards for transparency and accountability to the members that we welcome as the route to building further confidence in collective management.  We also like the standards-based approach to data and processing capability to support multi-territory licensing, because it will provide the incentives for the market to develop and aggregate on a voluntary basis.”     

 “As a membership society, owned by its members and governed by a board of directors elected by its membership, PRS for Music has always set the standard for good governance and will continue to do so.”
