APRA|AMCOS have schemes which allow content providers to make available a range of on-demand applications via streaming. These include DJ mixes (Discrete Music Mixes), individually accessible full length songs or clips (excerpts of up to 30 seconds music), music videos,movie trailers, TV programs and music TV programs.
We also have other licence schemes for on-demand applications available for private individuals and for websites which only want to use a small amount of music. Please contact us for further information on criteria and restrictions.
APRA|AMCOS charges a fee for each Background Music Licence
If the use you require is outside of these limitations (for example, you only want the one song to play on a loop) then you will need to seek clearance for the reproduction of this work directly from the copyright owners. We can help you identify the relevant copyright owners and obtain their contact details.
APRA|AMCOS receives many requests to use of a single piece of music on the opening page of a website – in many cases, in a flash animation file.
Use of any copyright musical work – other than Production Music - in this context is outside of the mandate APRA|AMCOS has from its members and must be cleared with the relevant copyright owners(s).
Broadcast Services can assist with licensing or identifying the owner(s) of the work. Email:
Music used in this context also exercises the APRA right of communication, and in addition to a reproduction licence, an APRA communication licence is also required. For more information, please contact us.
These licences are currently under review.
