GMIA MUSIC FUNDERS : PRSF

GMIA MUSIC RIGHTS : PRS, PPL & CCLI Workshop
PRS: We pay royalties to our members when their work is performed, broadcast, streamed, downloaded, reproduced, played in public or used in film and TV. We support them by influencing policy, supporting and hosting awards and events, and investing in new technology to ensure we’re fit for the digital music age.
PPL licenses recorded music in the UK when it is played in public or broadcast and ensures that revenue flows back to our members. These include independent and major record companies, together with performers ranging from emerging musicians to globally renowned artists. In 2019 we collected £271.8 million while also distributing money to over 119,000 performers and recording rightsholders.
CCLI: Simplifying Copyright, Empowering Worship, Enabling Discovery. CCLI provides affordable licences that permit the legal use of copyrighted works during worship, social and ministry activities. CCLI customers also benefit from a range of applications that aid discovery and enable easy access to worship resources, from songs to videos to sheet music.
