About the event: 

This event is now fully booked, but there are still places available for the same event running on Tuesday 8 June.

 


 

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, and what you need to consider when sharing sheet music and broadcasting performances online.

We'll talk about:

  • The definition of copyright
  • When a PRS fee is payable and how to make your payment
  • The different types of licence and what they cover
  • Sharing music online
  • Photocopying sheet music and sharing it electronically
  • Anything else that comes up on the topic!

There will be an opportunity to ask questions via the chat function during the event.
There will be a short break during the event.

Who this event is for:
Anyone is welcome to attend this event, but it will be especially useful for anyone in your group who looks after your photocopying, PRS licensing or PRS payments.

As our events are in high demand, we are requesting that only person per group books to attend, to allow as many different groups as possible to benefit.

Cost: FREE for members and non-members

We will be using Zoom to host the meeting, and will send you full instructions the day before the event on how to join.
