  Royalty Free Music

Performing Rights Organisations Worldwide

With any music, including royalty free music, public performances must be notified to your local Performance Rights society. You can usually do this through the broadcaster who's transmitting your production (by giving them a cue sheet), or you may contact them directly. If you aren't sure what a "public performance" is, ask your local society - basically if the public can hear the music, then it usually counts as a "performance" but there are different interpretations around the world. Follow the link to your local Performance Rights Organisation to check their local terms if you are unsure. Links are provided below for each country.
