You will need this licence to play copyrighted music at your community hall if you operate a community hall not owned by your local council.
You may apply for two types of cover:
- background music
- premium live performances (a live performance where the gross expenditure on live artist performers for a single event is more than $4000).
You may need both types of cover for the same day.
This licence legally authorises the public performance of copyrighted music from within the Australasian Performing Right Association and Australasian Mechanical Copyright Owners Society (APRA AMCOS) and Phonographic Performance Company of Australia (PPCA) global inventory of registered songs (called works), sound recordings and music videos.
Your licence will be obtained from OneMusic Australia and covers the rights of the above two organisations.
