First Sony Playstation game music licence announced

We have agreed a new licence deal with Sony Computer Entertainment Europe for the use of copyright music within games downloaded across Europe.

The licence is the first of its kind and covers the performing rights exploited when the music featured in games is delivered online through the Sony Playstation Store.

Covering the period from February 2007 to December 2013, the licence will provide those members who have written or published music used in the games with a new royalty stream.

Sony Computer Entertainment Europe has provided a list of the games downloaded during this period. We are now working hard to identify the music used in the games so we can pay the correct interested parties.

We are planning to distribute the royalties in December 2014, and strongly urge you to make sure you have registered all your works used in computer games by the beginning of November.
