Prs Law Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
PRS for Music Limited (formerly The MCPS-PRS Alliance Limited) is a British music copyright collective, made up of two collection societies: the Mechanical-Copyright Protection Society and the Performing Right Society (PRS). It undertakes collective rights management for musical works on behalf of its 140,000 members. PRS for Music was formed in 1997 following the MCPS-PRS Alliance.
Prs Law is an unprofessional company to work for, lacks basic management and leadership skills, and has a toxic working environment, a former employee claims at glassdoor.com
"it's not an employee focussed company, there are zero regards for staff well-being, it's a bullying and blame culture, real lack of diversity, no regard for company policies. I have never worked for such an unprofessional company that lacks basic management and leadership skills and creates unstable jobs for anyone joining the company. Staff turnover is horrendous!."
"RouteBot" from the "Routenote" website, writes a critical article on PRS for Music collective on July 2, 2009:
" ... For musicians, it isn’t at all a requirement that you join the PRS. They just provide a royalty collection service for some artists. Likewise, if you are a pub, club, music event, or venue, you need to pay an arranged royalty collection fee with the PRS if you play music from their artists. However, you don’t have to pay for royalties for artists who aren’t signed by the PRS, but they try to make you think that you just have to pay a blanket fee for all musicians! Simply not the case. The PRS needs to be able to provide information on exactly which artists they are representing, then each music venue, pub or club, should be able to negotiate a particular fee for every situation individually. The PRS believes that they even have the right to set a price and make people pay that price without any negotiations at all. In conclusion, the PRS is just a collection agency representing the performance rights of certain artists. The PRS doesn’t have the right to make any place that plays recorded music pay a fixed amount. The PRS also needs to provide documentation on which artists they are and are not representing, then it is a simple process of negotiating a price individually with a venue. Artists don’t have to signup to the PRS they are just an optional collection agency for performance rights and they work in a similar way to how RouteNote works, but obviously in a different sector. If the PRS don’t represent artists whose music is played in a particular venue then each venue is supposed to, by law, find out and pay whoever owns that particular copyright on every single track. So why pay the middle man, or in some cases the artist and the middle man? Why do the PRS find it acceptable to demand royalties for a list of names they refuse to publish? Why do we have to pay the PRS for listening to the radio at work, do the radio stations not pay enough royalties themselves?"
