Music Licencing

In New Zealand, any business that plays music that can be heard by their clients (also known as public performance) is required to get permission from the copyright holders of the music they play.

The purchase of music (Spotify/iTunes/CD/Tape/MP3) does not give permission to publicly perform this music.

The easiest way to obtain this permission is by having a OneMusic Licence.
