Why join IPRS?
As an author, composer, and/or publisher, when you make/produce a song, you may own the copyright of the song. However, as a creator and/or publisher it might be challenging for you to keep a track of all the different places/mediums your song/music is being exploited. Hence, at IPRS our key role is to ensure that authors, composers, and owners of music, who are our members, are duly credited, whenever their musical compositions and songs are streamed, downloaded, broadcast, performed, and played in public. As a copyright society, we issue licenses to music users and collect royalties on behalf of our members. IPRS is a Non-Profit organization, which means, all the money that is collected on behalf of our members is distributed back to them, deducting only the administration cost, and that too is within limits, mandated by the Govt. IPRS also has Direct Reciprocal Agreements with multiple societies across the globe, thus ensuring that our members do not miss out on their Royalties from foreign lands as well. At IPRS, we have been driving significant changes, keeping pace with the changing times and, positively influencing our members’ lives.
