I recently had a meeting with a senior manager of the PRS, talking about a TV show I recently scored.
I mentioned that I also sell music on here, but when I mentioned that the music I produce for here doesn’t get registered with PRS as we can’t due to AJ rules, he alarmingly told me that as a PRS member, i’m under a contractual obligation to register all music I compose that is publicly available with PRS, not doing so is a breach of the PRS writers contract…
Naturally I’m pretty alarmed, and obviously if this is the case, pretty annoyed that I’ll have to remove all music from here and find another avenue for selling the tracks.
I did send a support ticket here, but it was pretty useless as they could not clarify or give me any information to back up that selling on here using un-registered PRS tracks is OK, almost as though they don’t know themselves, so they just told me to clear this with PRS.
My thoughts are, if its contractually binding that being a member of PRS means I can’t sell un registered tracks, why would Envato allow PRS members to sell on here?
Is there anyone on here who could give me some insight?
I’d hate to close my account as things are starting to work well on here and I love being a part of the community…
