PRS for Music

We are a society of songwriters, composers and music publishers. We license organisations to play, perform or make available copyright music on behalf of our members and those of overseas societies, distributing the royalties to them fairly and efficiently. We promote and protect the value of copyright.
Performing rights royalties are paid to a songwriter, composer or publisher whenever their music is played or performed in any public space or place. This includes TV, radio, online, in a shop, an office, pub or restaurant, at a concert, a sporting event and thousands of other places.

Mechanical rights
MCPS represents our members’ mechanical rights, whenever a piece of music is reproduced as a physical product.
Mechanical rights royalties are different and are paid to the songwriter, composer or publisher when music is reproduced as a physical product or for broadcast or online.
What’s changing?
The PRS for Music brand now represents our members’ mechanical rights whenever a piece of music is reproduced for broadcast or online. MCPS will continue to represent the mechanical rights for physical products at this stage.

What’s staying the same?
The Mechanical-Copyright Protection Society will continue to exist as a legal entity, company name and as a brand for physical products’ mechanical rights. Cheques will come from the Mechanical-Copyright Protection Society Limited, you can still send cheques to the Mechanical-Copyright Protection Society Limited and it will continue to be registered at Companies House.
