So, Why do I need a music licence? This question crosses a lot of business owners minds when thinking about music in your business – Why? What exactly is it that I’m paying for? Do you have to have a music licence?
The simple answer if you want to play recorded music, radio or even TV in your business or in any kind of workplace, is yes – it’s the law.
There are two different types of music licence available; these are obtained from two separate organisations: PRS and PPL, and generally you will require one from both.
We can all agree that music has a massive impact on our lives – it’s almost everywhere we go. It has the power to alter our mood and change the whole feel of a room; but just why is it that this sound is so important to us?
Ok, ok, we know it’s early to be thinking about Christmas music in your business, but it’s important that you get it right. Should I, shouldn’t I? Debating on whether to play Christmas music in your business or not can be a confusing and frustrating task. Some people absolutely love it, inspiring a feeling of celebration and excitement within them, we like to call them the ‘Noddy Holders’ – others however, will despise it, ah the ‘Bah Humbugs’. The chances are that you’ll get both groups in your business, so it’s important to decide whether it will benefit your business… psst course it will ‘It’s Christmas!’
