Performance rights: yes, the writers should be recompensed- the PRS does collect from all venues. But it then distributes on the basis of Radio & TV plays principally, establishing a percentage of total income and paying out under the headings of eg jukebox & karaoke royalties. The weighting heavily benefits those with such broadcast exposure. When local radio is entirely registered as opposed to sampled this might alter for the better, but for those of us whose work is principally sung in live performances in pubs by other singers there is no automatic payment. Money distorts all- supermarket broadcasts of 'Yesterday', should they count every time, and if not, why not? we might end up with less. There is an argument for PRS to untie the link between broadcast and payout, and that argument should take place within, probably.
Just waiting for someone to use one of mine on a film score as traditional...!
