“The amount of money that songwriters received from sales of CDs fell by 15 per cent in the first half of this year, according to figures to be published this week by the MCPS-PRS Alliance, which collects royalties for songwriters and composers.”

MCPS-PRS increased revenue from internet downloads to £82.3m
