When playing or performing music in public, like in your business, you must have the proper rights. Whether it’s a coffee shop, shoe store, medical office, hotel, spa, hair salon, or whatever, a business must have the proper licenses to play music.
The purpose of the United States Copyright Law is to protect the rights of artists, authors, composers and publishers to their work. When anyone plays or performs music in public, or distributes music in any form, they must have the rights to that music. If not, U.S. federal copyright laws call for severe legal and financial penalties.
While these licenses also protect you, they are really designed to protect the artists you know and love so they receive the proper compensation for their work and can continue to write and create the music that entertains the world.
