Composers’ rights group shortlists for fresh brief

British Music Rights, an organisation that promotes the interests of composers and songwriters in the face of new technology, is reviewing its public affairs account.

Fleishman-Hillard is the incumbent. The rethink comes ahead of several parliamentary inquiries concerning music copyright. These include a Culture, Media and Sport select committee inquiry into the
'impact of new technologies on creative industries' and an all-party parliamentary group examination of digital rights technology, said BMR chief executive Emma Pike.

It has shortlisted AS Biss & Co, Consolidated, Edelman, Lexington, LLM and F-H for the contract and will make an appointment before Christmas.

BMR runs an educational campaign in schools to raise awareness of the impact of illegal file-sharing systems on the British music industry. Called 'Respect the Value of Music', it is backed by English songwriters such as Guy Chambers and Lucie Silvas.
