Performing Rights Organizations (PRO) collect royalties for public performance of music created by their members. Some of the PROs are ASCAP, BMI in the US, SOCAN in Canada, PRS in the UK, GEMA in Germany, and many more around the world. If you use any music created by a PRO affiliated composer you may be required to obtain a performance license.
Not every situation requires you to get the performance license. If you created a promo video for your business and simply want to upload it to YouTube you don’t need a separate performance license, since YouTube already has a blanked license that allows it to broadcast any PRO registered music. However, if you want to play that music (or a video with that music) in your place of business, at an event, or broadcast it online on your Web site, it’s best to check with a PRO in your country to find out what the requirements are.
Sounds complicated? A simple solution is to use music that isn’t affiliated with any PRO at all. No affiliation – no need to get a performance license for any type of public broadcast, both online and offline.
