Music for Business

No matter what your business type the likelihood is that background music is an important feature. Studies have shown music has the ability to reinforce brand, enhance customer experience and influence customer behaviour (source: psychologistsworld). The benefits apply whether you’re a big or small business. However playing licensed music can be very costly.

If you’re a business owner and play music whether for your staff and/or customers you are legally required to purchase a Music Licence. The licence allows you to play music, for which royalties are collected by the relevant performance rights organisation. Playing music without a licence can result in legal action being taken for copyright infringement.

Music without the licence

Most business owners want to play music but often don’t because of the cost of the licence. There is however an alternative that allows you to utilise all the benefits of playing background music without the need for a music licence.

Royalty free music is music that you can play legally without a licence. This is because royalty payments do not need to be collected. Many businesses save huge amounts of money swapping to a royalty free music service.
