I understand (from friends high up in the music trade) that the MPA (Music Publishers Association) are now taking an interest in the band world. They have, over the last few years, clamped down on choral societies and caught a few with un-authorised arrangements and photocopies; both attracting multi-thousand pound fines. I hear they are now starting to take a look at the band/orchestra field as they've heard of the amount of photocopying and illegal, un-authorised, arranging that goes on within it. Could any band afford the associated possible £25,000 fine that could go with being caught. I believe that the MPA has the authority to check any band library or any music at rehearsals or concerts. (Perhaps somebody could clarify) You have been warned.
