About MRSS

The People and the Organisation

Music Rights (Singapore) Public Limited, also known as MRSS, was incorporated on 18 July 2018 as a result of the merger between Recording Industry Music Services (RIMS) and Recording Industry Performance Singapore Pte Ltd (RIPS). As a Collective Management Organisation (CMO), it represents the majority of music producers in Singapore and administers the copyrights for both karaoke, music videos and sound recordings for commercial usage on their behalf.

Licence fees collected are distributed back to MRSS members after deduction of operation costs. In this way, the rights of copyright owners are safeguarded and fair business practice in the music industry upheld.

Unauthorised use of copyrighted materials is an infringement of the Singapore Copyright Act and an infringer is liable to civil proceedings or criminal prosecution, possibly both.
