The Performing Rights Society for Music calls for a traffic-light system to warn consumers when they are on music-hosting websites that breach copyright law
The PRSM wants to make it easier for consumers to know if they websites they visit are hosting music illegally or not. A music-licensing body wants it made easier for people to know if material on websites breaches copyright law.
The Performing Rights Society for Music (PRSM) is suggesting a “traffic light” system for when a person carries out an internet search. The idea is an icon or mark, such as a red tick warning of illegal hosting and a green tick for legitimate content, appears in a link next to a site.
