Dispute over live streaming music platform

The Performing Rights Society (PRS) recently issued legal proceedings against LIVENow, an online platform for the live streaming of music concerts. PRS, in words from its website, protects “the value of music by licensing music usage and collecting royalties globally for our members”. LIVENow is a music streaming platform which has hosted numerous successfully live stream concerts, including Dua Lipa’s Studio 2054 in November 2020. PRS’s claim is reportedly based on LIVENow not providing accurate revenue information to enable PRS to calculate royalty payments due in relation to live streamed concerts. The dispute is believed to be ongoing, and will be reassuring for PRS members to see that the society is staying up to date with advancing ways of sharing music online.
