Music is essential energy, it’s commercial oxygen

No matter what your business does, music can help to bring it to life. Whether this is boosting staff morale, defining your brand or helping to improve your customers experience. Music has the power to enhance your organisation and create a more collaborative and welcoming environment… and turn a cocktail into a conga, a shop floor into a fiesta or a salon into a soundstage!

TheMusicLicence

No matter what your industry, music has the power to make it the best it can be. But it is important to make sure your premises are correctly licenced to play it.

Under the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988, permission is needed from the relevant copyright holders – those people who create music – in order to play or perform music in public.

TheMusicLicence gives you this permission, in relation to the vast majority of commercially available music. This ranges from grassroots and independent artists and composers through to the biggest names in the business all from as little as £0.64 per day*.

Do I need a licence?
  • If you use, play or listen to recorded music in your business or organisation, the chances are you need a music licence. Under The Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988, permission is needed from the relevant copyright holders – those people who create music – in order to play or perform music in public. Obtaining TheMusicLicence gives you this permission, in relation to the vast majority of commercially available music. This ranges from grassroots and independent artists and composers through to the biggest names in the business. It means you don’t have to spend your time and energy contacting potentially hundreds of thousands of rightsholders individually to get permission to play or perform their music in your business.
Music Licence fees pay music creators

Where does my money go?

After our business costs, music licence fees are distributed to all those involved in making music via our parent companies PPL and PRS for Music. This means that those people who write, perform, compose, record or publish music are fairly rewarded for their talent and creativity.
