I’m from Italy, with the unique PRO called SIAE.
Since many of my tracks are with US agencies, I joined BMI about 2 years ago.
Not too complicated, as you told, I asked SIAE a territories release for U.S./ Canada. Then I proceeded to BMI registration.
So now BMI manage my royalties for these markets.
From my point of view I had 2 great benefits:
– higher frequency in payments: BMI pays every quarter, SIAE only every 6 months.
– now I see all the cue sheets , not with SIAE.
Probably with PRS you have already these kind of stuff..
SIAE is not a very well managed company, it has always been in a monopoly regime and in fact now in Italy there is a company called Soundreef that tries to compete with it, thanks to recent European laws.
