International societies 

PRS for Music looks after more than just the UK, we look after the rights of music creators all
around the world. We have around 150 speakersagreements with collecting societies in nearly 100 countries that collect and distribute royalties for performances in their country, and like us, distribute to their own members as well as members of other societies.

International

Under these agreements, we represent the rights of our sister societies' members for the public performance of their rights in the UK. This means that a licence from PRS for Music covers you even if you're playing music written or composed by non-UK composers and songwriters who are members of our sister societies.
