PRS for Music welcomes CISAC and Your Music Your Future partnership
PRS for Music welcomes new international education resource, “Your Music Your Future International”, bringing together the US music creators’ movement Your Music Your Future and CISAC, the global confederation of authors societies with 230 members in over 120 countries and territories.
I welcome the launch of ‘Your Music Your Future International’ and CISAC’s ongoing commitment to educating composers around the world about the practice of buyouts across film, TV and video games. It is important that music creators can make informed decisions about their rights, and understand clearly how to balance possible short term benefits against the long term disadvantages. This resource will be invaluable for anyone looking to better understand how to secure the best value for their work.
