Latest PRS for Music Statement in relation to Google/YouTube 

10 March 2009

Talks between PRS for Music and Google took place today to discuss the licensing of YouTube following Google's sudden decision to block premium video content on the service in the UK.

The meeting was positive. We are committed to ensuring our 60,000 songwriter and composers members receive a fair deal and that UK consumers continue to enjoy music videos on YouTube.

PRS for Music and Google are due to meet again over the next few days.
