    RE: The Strathspeyer's CD - Mix and Match - MCPS licensing

    Thank you Phill.
       
      However, is any money actually given to copywrite holders who are
      not known to these two organisations - in other words, what effort
      do they go to to pay copyright holders of country dance music and
      music composed outside the UK?
       
      Regards,

    MCPS stands for Mechanical-Copyright Protection Society (see
    www.mcps.co.uk). It is the mechanism for paying royalties to the
    composers of any tunes still in copyright that are recorded on the CD
    and is charged based on the number of CDs produced, how long the tune
    lasts on the recording etc... and whether the composer is a member of
    the MCPS.
