PRS CUTS TIES WITH RUSSIAN ORG RAO
3/8/22

British PRO PRS for Music has suspended its rights representation with Russian society RAO. The org also plans to making financial support available to members in Ukraine.

PRS for Music formally suspended “our rights representation relationship with RAO, the Russian collecting society for musical works, pending confirmation of its separation from the Russian Government and those individuals and companies on the sanctions lists.”

The PRO said it's working with European org CISAC to “consider the ongoing membership of Russian societies in the global network.”

“It is not our desire to punish the Russian composer, songwriter and publisher communities who support peace, and we will work with the global community to identify opportunities to amplify the voices of protest,” PRS noted.

In addition, PRS said it will be contacting members based in the Ukraine to offer financial support via its Members’ Fund.
