Music Royalties From Abroad

EDM number 660 in 2012-13, proposed by Mike Weatherley on 31/10/2012.
Categorised under the topics of Licensing and Performing arts.

That this House recognises the achievement of UK songwriters, composers and publishers abroad through their creative endeavours; applauds the efforts of the Performing Rights Society for Music for collecting an additional 100 million in royalties from overseas during the past decade to reach the sum of over 187 million in 2011 due to the widespread consumption of British music abroad and improved music licensing practices around the world; notes the fact that the UK is one of only three countries in the world which is a net exporter of music; and acknowledges that extra international revenue will flow back into the UK in the future through Government support for robust copyright and fiscal policies, both domestically and internationally, to ensure that the UK maintains its music export competitive advantage.

This motion has been signed by a total of 20 MPs.
