I am very happy that MRCSN has launched its new, revamped website. The website offers a glimpse into the workings of MRCSN, the rejuvenated copyright society registered by the Government of Nepal. The MRCSN website is a guide for members – to understand how MRCSN works, what their rights are and how the collective system works. The website offers a considerable amount of insight to our valued clients/ licensees as well. The website comprises of two sets of information, one, which MRCSN is required by law to host and present in a transparent manner and two, other additional and relevant information which will assist our licensees with their licensing choices.

MRCSN has come a long way and today stands firm as a representative body of all of its members, Music Publishers, Lyricists (Authors) and Music Composers. All our members are crucial to the viability of MRCSN, this website is intended to be an important window for our members and licensees to interact with MRCSN. As MRCSN technological development and digital engagement exercise gathers momentum, the website will be joined by other technology assets to ensure increased transparency, fairness and visibility to MRCSN members. Users of MRCSN music repertoire are no less important, which is why MRCSN intends to provide as much information as possible to better inform users of music about their rights and responsibilities. I congratulate the MRCSN team for revamping the MRCSN website and invite our members and users to interact with MRCSN the team more frequently and enthusiastically.
