European deal between PRS and iTunes

European deal between PRS and iTunes

Few details are available right now, but the deal will provide pan-European performing rights for all PRS members as well as mechanical and performing rights license for content from Peer Music and Chrysalis Music

It also gives licensing framework for rights from other leading independent publishers (including those of the recently announced IMPEL scheme)

PRS for Music managing director Broadcast, Online & Recorded Media, Andrew Shaw says, "In our view (the deal) demonstrates that PRS for Music provides a compelling pan-European offering and leads the market in enabling digital music growth, whilst delivering vital royalties to our members."

PRS for Music originally signed a UK license deal with iTunes in 2004
