PRS for Music consultation
Richard Hooper was appointed to lead an independent review on the role of PRS for Music and any subsequent impact change may have on Distribution Policy.
The review is now in progress and includes input from writers, publishers and board members across various musical genres.
The consultation is running as an open and transparent process with related information, including issues raised within the consultation groups, being made available to all members through this area of our website.
As expected, a wide range of issues emerged from the discussions with publisher and writer members. The key points put forward by the interviewed publishers and writers to date have been grouped and documented in the dated meeting notes which can be found at the foot of this page.
Please note, these documents contain the opinions of individual members and do not necessarily reflect or indeed state the views of the wider membership or of PRS for Music.
At the end of the review Richard Hooper will re-examine the viewpoints expressed by members and produce a report for the Board to consider with regards to the role of PRS for Music.
Previously, Richard Hooper worked as Deputy Chair of Ofcom from 2002 to 2005 and led the Digital Copyright Exchange feasibility review last year. He is currently Chairman of the Independent Review of the Postal Services sector.
