GUEST,Graham Bradshaw PRS licence for band (9) RE: PRS licence for band 07 Jul 08

No John. The money goes into a big pot and is paid out on the basis of some convoluted sampling system.

Wearing my other hat as a record company, I do get a bit of money from PPL, mostly for radio plays. I've never seen any money for live plays which are covered by the 100 odd quid a year that I, and thousands of others, have to pay. OK, I know that the cost of analysing it is disproportionate, and to be honest I wouldn't want to send in reports of what I have played. Mostly, I've no idea anyway.

But as with PRS, it is a cosy little club that always looks after the 'big boys' in preference to us lesser mortals.

Thus has it always been!!
