PRS for Music and BMAT sign deal for Malta

PRS for Music has announced a deal with BMAT Music Innovation for music tracking services in Malta.

PRS for Music is the appointed collecting society in the country and has responsibility for the collection of music licences and payment of royalties to Maltese members of PRS for Music and the international community of authors' societies.

Starting 1 February, BMAT will supply technology that will track the 11 major radio and television stations in the country providing accurate logs of music usage, to support and supplement airplay logs that PRS for Music already collects.
