Global song database set to make music publishing easier
News: 28th January 2013 by Louise Dodgson under Finance, Law & Music Business, Music Publishing
As we speak the GRD (Global Repertoire Database) is being built, a mammoth bank of songs from around the world logged in a single database. The concept was launched in 2009 by PRS For Music, with backing from major music publishers but obviously a great deal of work is required to make this comprehensive, one-stop source of information for global songs.
As development continues, more publishers have pledged their support for GRD and once the database is launched in 2015, it is hoped that it will elimate issues surrounding copyright management and music licensing for collection societies, rightholders and music publishers.
