Music rights body calls in Lexington

Lexington Communications has emerged triumphant in landing the PA contract for British Music Rights after a competitive pitch.

The body exists to promote the interests of composers and songwriters in the face of new technology and is preparing to deal with a number of parliamentary inquiries into copyright.

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 are both pending.

In addition, BMR is assisting creative industries minister James Purnell in his efforts to set up a music council. This would aim to unite the music sector on major issues and be a partner to government in developing music policies.

Lexington saw off AS Biss & Co, Consolidated Communications, Edelman, LLM and previous incumbent Fleishman-Hillard.
