PRS for Music: working to promote and protect copyright

PRS for Music represents the rights of over 118,000 songwriters, composers and music publishers in the UK, as well as millions worldwide who are members of affiliated societies overseas.

PRS for Music ran a consultation on the terms of Tariff LP (LP stands for ‘Light and Popular’) which is used to license the use of copyright music, controlled by PRS for Music, at live popular music events.

Tariff LP is a Tribunal tariff that was set in 1988 by order of the Performing Right Tribunal, which later became the Copyright Tribunal.

The purpose of this consultation was to seek views on the findings of a comprehensive investigation by PRS for Music into the changes in the live music industry since 1988, to ensure that PRS for Music is operating a tariff that is fit for the purpose of licensing live popular music events going forward.
