Our global network

We have representation agreements with societies covering 150 countries around the world. This enables us to collect and distribute royalties for the use of our members’ music across the globe.

Through these agreements we also collect on behalf of our affiliated societies and their members, when their music is used in the UK or our managed territories.

2016 International Income

Our International income has more than doubled in the last 10 years demonstrating the success of our members' works around the world and the proactive work of the International department carried out on behalf of members.

We are able to collect income for both writer and publisher members from over 100 countries around the world through a network of representation agreements with foreign counterpart societies.

PRS has agreements with societies that mean our members can be paid for the use of their work abroad. Through these agreements, our members' rights are represented in most countries around the world.
