APRA AMCOS helps music creators get paid for their work and give music users easy ways to legally play and copy what they like. R&CA partners with APRA AMCOS to help members understand their copyright obligations and ensure licensing fees are fair and reasonable.

How APRA AMCOS works:

APRA AMCOS contacts business to discuss their music use, educate them on the value of music and assist in acquiring the appropriate licence to play music. Compliance checks are also carried out to monitor music use in businesses and legal action may be taken when a venue declines acquiring a proper licence and continues to play music without permission. A recent case in Victoria saw a small bar fined almost $200,000 for avoiding payment of the licensing fee over a sustained period.

Music creators appoint APRA AMCOS to look after certain rights on their behalf. This means businesses using music don’t have to contact every songwriter and composer, they can just go through APRA AMCOS for permission, via a licence. For a modest fee APRA AMCOS issues licences in Australia and New Zealand giving businesses permission to play music. APRA AMCOS then pays the royalties back to their members based on streaming, broadcasting and live performances’ data and much more.

Find out more about the different licensing requirements for various business genres and public playing of music below:
