Who we work with
We collaborate closely with other organisations to create a supportive environment for music makers and an efficient network for licensing music.
Supporting music creators since 2000, the PRS Foundation is the UK’s leading funder of new music and talent development across all genres. They support an exceptional range of new music activity and have invested more than £23.6 million in over 5,300 new music initiatives.
PRS for Music Benevolent Fund
The PRS for Music Benevolent Fund supports members and their dependants, offering financial support and advice in times of need. In 2016 they shared £351,273, making a real difference for many members.
ICE is a collaboration and partnership between PRS for Music, STIM and GEMA, which has resulted in the development of the world’s first integrated licensing and processing hub
The Independent Music Publishers’ E-Licensing is a collective of independent music publishers that have appointed MCPS to license and administer the online mechanical rights in their Anglo-American repertoire on their behalf.
PPL (Phonographic Performance Limited) is a separate organisation from PRS for Music, representing the rights of performers and record companies.
PRS for Music and PPL, the UK’s two music collecting societies, joined forces to set up PPL PRS Ltd, a joint venture combining the two societies’ public performance licensing activities. PPL PRS Ltd launched the joint licence on 26 February 2018 and offers a single licence, called TheMusicLicence, on behalf of both PRS for Music and PPL, to play or perform music in public.
