Many dealers may not be aware that music they play in their dealership could be copyrighted and therefore subject to licensing.
As an example, copyright music that is played through a radio or TV, streamed through a portable electronic device or played through the phone system is subject to the licensing requirements of the Copyright Act.
AADA has been in contact with the licensing provider, APRA AMCOS, who have provided the below industry guide, which includes more detailed information about when you will need a license and a pricing schedule of license fees.
Please refer to the below for further information.
