You will need this licence to use copyrighted music in a dramatic context, such as a theatre performance.
Dramatic context means the performance of musical works:
- as part of a presentation on the live stage that has a storyline and one or more narrators or characters
- as a ballet.
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.
Please consult the Contact Officer for more information.
