Getting to grips with PRS and copyright (Edinburgh)

 Registration is closed for this event
Get together with other leisure-time music makers and hear more from Making Music staff about the ins and outs of PRS and copyright.

The topic we receive the most queries about is PRS. What is PRS, how do you pay it and just why is it so complicated?

In this session, we’ll clear up some of the mysteries and help you to understand how, when and where you need to make your PRS payments.
