Rights and Royalties Masterclass

Wednesday, 18th June 2014

11:00 - 15:00

Loft Music Studios, 4th Floor, British India House, 15 Carliol Square, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 6UF


At Generator, we are regularly asked about your music rights and royalty collection. In response to this we've arranged for Andy Ellis of PRS for Music to host a masterclass which will cover everything you need to know about the rights contained within a song and how to unlock the royalties which you are entitled to. We will walk you through PRS sign-up and reporting systems so that your songs are correctly registered, and your royalties can easily be generated and paid out to you. As part of this session, Andy will also be holding a Q&A to answer any burning questions you may have.

The day will cover

  • What is copyright
  • PRS for Music Registration
  • Which royalties you are entitled to from recordings, airplay, live, etc.
  • How to claim your royalties
