India’s PRS Upgrades Royalties Admin System

The Indian Performing Right Society (IPRS) announced it is expanding its agreement with copyright management solutions provider Dataclef to include next-level back-office and rights management services including tariff administration, member self-service tools, and brand support.

IPRS is India’s only registered copyright society for music composers, lyricists, and music publishers.

According to Dataclef, “the rapid expansion of music and technology use in India means that rights holders require modern, scalable music identification and royalty administration solutions. IPRS has determined that Dataclef Suite, a fully-configurable agreements-based platform, is perfect for the forward-thinking collection society.”

“The commencement of this deal will restructure IPRS into a world-class, technology-driven copyright society focused on transparency and efficiency,” said IPRS Chairman Javed Akhtar. “The Dataclef team’s deep industry and technology expertise makes Dataclef Suite the obvious choice for building the future of Indian copyright management.”

IPRS and Dataclef will immediately begin collaborative efforts to deploy and operate the new IPRS back office. The services being planned and assessed include functions, processes, and technologies required to launch a world-class copyright society using Dataclef Suite.
