PRS for Music is home to in excess of 124,000 songwriter, composer and publisher members. We are one of the world’s most efficient collecting societies and are affiliated to a global network of equivalent member organisations.
Our primary purpose is to collect royalties for our members whenever their music is played, performed or made available around the world, in line with our distribution policy. We also grant businesses and organisations with the permissions they need to copy and distribute our members’ music, for example onto DVDs and CDs.
