Is PRS for Music right for you?

Joining PRS for Music as a songwriter or composer means you can earn money when your music is used. You don’t need to be signed to a record label or a publisher, but you do need to be identified as the copyright owner of a musical work. 

If you're a DJ and you're creating your own music, you can join. This includes any remixing or sampling of other people's music. You might also be a producer who's included in the copyright shares for a work, although it's more usual for producers not to be included.

If you're playing music as a DJ, representing a record label, or performing in a covers band, you can't collect royalties as you won't have a writing credit. We’re here to collect and distribute royalties for the creators and publishers of musical works.
