Subject: RE: PRS at it again!!
I think this way of ensuring that individuals get what they are entitled to is the best way - but it is time-consuming.

From the organisation's point of view - you can see the attractions of having a catch-all blanket licence.

And perhaps from everyone else's point of view - see the dangers of an approach where the implication is that no music can take place without this licence?

If this move to insist that all retail music shops need PRS/PPL/MCPS type licences is to be a general one - the effect is hardly likely to result in good publicity for PRS and its members and the increased financial burden is not really going to do these music shops or the general interests of music making any good.
