Partners with The ZIRO Festival of Music 2022 to promote independent musicians from the Northeast
The Indian Performing Right Society Limited (IPRS), India’s sole copyright organization that represents more than 8000 eminent authors, composers, and publishers across the nation, attended the ZIRO Festival of Music.
To educate music aficionados about the advantages of licensing and the types of music copyrights available.
IPRS has been relentlessly working towards protecting the copyrights of independent lyricists and musicians. They want to educate the artists in tier 2 and 3 cities. This is the first initiative in that direction.
At the festival, artists were explained the plethora of advantages of licensing to music composers, and songwriters and how registering with IPRS will safeguard their creations.
Ziro Festival of Music is the 1st music event in the Northeast that realized the importance of legitimately using copyrighted Music and giving the creators of music their rightful dues and took a license from the IPRS.
At the festival, participants from various segments and genres of the music industry learned about IPRS, and its theatre of operations.
Why music licensing matters and the future of music licensing in the digital era.
The role of the IPRS is to legitimize use of copyrighted Music by Music users by issuing them Licences and collecting royalties from Music Users, for and on behalf of IPRS members.
“After a prolonged Covid hiatus, we are overjoyed to be attending the Ziro Festival of Music. We take this opportunity to educate music enthusiasts about the advantages of licensing for original ideas and hard work, and how it can become a permanent source of revenue for them. Our goal is to develop a more robust music ecosystem that will fuel the enthusiasm among young musicians and will provide a breeding ground for upcoming artists beyond metros and state capitals. At IPRS we believe in educating artists, composers, and authors about their rights, explaining their options, and helping them make informed choices on the way they are paid. Their future livelihoods depend on it”. We are very grateful to the organizers of Ziro Festival of Music, for procuring a license and for allowing us to interact with the music community present at the festival.”Mr. Rakesh Nigam, CEO of IPRS added:
The IPRS team met and educated budding artists, musicians, and lyricists about music copyrights at the Ziro Festival of Music.
These young musicians will soon be on board IPRS as members. Once on board, IPRS can help them protect their music and earn royalties from it.
IPRS is the first copyright body that is traveling across the country to educate musicians on the benefits of associating with them.
The IPRS has already conducted its proprietary “Learn and Earn” workshop, in Chennai, Hyderabad, and Kolkata. It is planning to conduct the same in Punjab shortly.
