The MCPS & PRS for Music Joint Ringbacks is aimed at companies who record music as ringbacks to supply to the UK public.

How often should you expect to be paid?

Due to little or no growth in this product area, we have not yet had any distributions for this scheme.

Do we pay you for each track used?


What do we charge a customer for the use of your music?

Either 15% of gross revenue or 15 pence per ringback supplied (whichever is the greater).

£1000 non-returnable advance from licensee offset against royalties accrued on an ongoing basis.

What commission rate do you pay us on the royalties collected?


Special Considerations

30 second audio-only clips may be given for consumers to sample before they buy.

What does the scheme exclude?

Mobile phones that can forward or copy ringtones. Visual material (only to be used in vid-tones or pic-tones). Reproduction of lyrics, musical notation, sponsorship/advertising messages.
