The legal definitions - Our Licenses grant Mechanical & Synchronisation rights as described above.

Mechanical rights - the right to reproduce our music, relating to various media.

Performance Rights - Our license does not include Performance Rights - as the media Producer, you do not pay Performance Rights license fees.

As with all music, broadcasts and public performances of our music must be notified to your local Performance Rights Organisation - this is the responsibility of whoever makes the public performance of music (for example the TV station, radio network, business-owner, or hosting venue) and includes the composer name(s), track title, music duration, and broadcast/programme details. Public performance of our music may require an additional license from the local Performance Rights Organisation, for example to the TV station, radio network, business-owner, or hosting venue.
