Thread Name: PRS at it again!!
Subject: RE: PRS at it again!!
If what I heard from a live venue owner is still true, the PRS were trying to make it the responsibility of organizers to submit accredited set lists from live gigs at one point. If that is the case, how on earth is an organizer meant to know if a song is played in the "trad" arrangement or the "trad / arr smith" version?

Additionally, I believe that the MCPS is now also considering monitoring artist sales of self produced CDs (usually CDRs). If this IS the case, artists will have to keep damn good records of what they press themselves if they are covering songs by MCPS (and affiliated) members.
