MMF & FAC Statement on the PRS for Music announcement that members performing their own works in a small online ticketed concert can now obtain a free licence

01 February 2021

David Martin, CEO, Featured Artists Coalition + Annabella Coldrick, CEO, Music Managers Forum

We are pleased that PRS for Music have listened to calls from artists, managers and others across the industry.  It is a welcome step forward that writer-performers playing their own material will be exempted from paying for a licence at small-scale livestream shows. 

 

We also welcome that PRS will now begin dialogue with artists, managers and other key stakeholders about the licensing of larger livestream events, and commit to agreeing a discounted rate while ‘in-person’ shows remain closed.  Decisions around collection and distribution of revenue impact cross-sections of the music industry and cannot be taken on a unilateral basis.  Therefore, we look forward to a full and inclusive consultation on these matters in the days and weeks ahead
