Business owners don't always understand that simply buying a CD, for example, doesn't give them the right to play it in a commercial environment.
Generally speaking, any business that wants to play copyright protected music or music videos has to first obtain the requisite licences.
PPCA | Recording Artists' Licences
The Phonographic Performance Company of Australia is a national, non government, non-profit organisation that represents the interests of record companies and Australian recording artists.
We work together with our licensors, being thousands of Australian recording artists and hundreds of labels both major and independent.
While PPCA enables businesses to thrive by playing a repertoire of quality music, we also safeguard the rights of thousands of Australian recording artists and labels, ensuring that they receive a fair return for their music.
