You’re entitled to register as a licensor if you:

  • own the copyright in the recording itself – different from the copyright in the song; or
  • have an exclusive licence agreement for Australia with the owner of a recording. e.g. a local record label releasing in Australia a recording owned by an overseas record label.

So, rather than every sound recording copyright owner having to grant licences to every business playing their recordings in public, we handle the workload.  We collect licence fees from broadcasters and businesses publicly playing recorded music (CDs, tapes, records) or music videos, and distribute the money to the copyright holders (licensors) and Australian recording artists registered with us.  Register as a licensor to access public performance and broadcast revenue, it's free.
