@wall_e , the license between the U.S. PROs, ASCAP and BMI, and their composers is non-exclusive, which allows composers to direct license. Many societies in other nations require an exclusive license from their composers, which can limit composers’ freedom and autonomy.
I am thinking about moving from PRS to BMI. It seems that PRS has become worse in recent years. My music usage claims are hanging months without any action from their side. Support does not answer until I send 2-3 letters. And suddenly the money stopped coming to my bank. I’m trying to solve this problem with support since April … so far without success.
