Do PRS not use Competitrack or anything?

Per some advice from a co-writer, I recently switched from BMI collecting worldwide to BMI collecting US only and PRS collecting worldwide.

However, I’m talking to PRS and asked about their tracking of commercials and if they use Competitrack or anything. My contact responded by saying not to his knowledge, and that licensees provide direct reporting.

Can anyone verify this? How do they track commercial usage?

Licensees have a duty to report usage in Commercials/TV by completing cue sheets. These sheets contain metadata that includes writers details along with the PRO the writer belongs to plus details of the channel, production company, duration of use etc. This is then manually submitted to PRS. There is also a system in place for audio recognition by a (UK) company called soundmouse who PRS use but you have to submit to them yourself to have music on their database.

Hope that helps
