You will need this licence if you want to reproduce music in a physical form (CDs, cassettes, etc). This licence allows you to reproduce music for:
- retail sale in stores
- retail sale at performances
- submission as a demo or audition
- background music
- educational purposes such as providing students with recordings free of charge.
A 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.
You would obtain a licence from OneMusic Australia depending on the type of business or organisation you are operating and this covers the rights of the above two organisations.
