Works

Once you're a PRS member and your work is registered on our database, we'll be able to claim royalties on your behalf when your music is used. Each registered work will be given its own unique tune code, which we use to identify when it's been used. 

If you're not a member, you can take a look around to see how works are managed in our database. You should also look at what we do before making your way to join us.

Search the database

As a member you'll be able to search our works database to see the registered author and publisher details for each work. You'll also be able to check details such as tune code and duration.

Using other people's work

If you want to arrange, sample or remix a piece of music that you don’t own, you need permission from the rightsholder, who you can identify through the works database.
