APRA AMCOS introduces Online Showreels Licence
APRA AMCOS have launched a new licence which caters to agencies wanting to use licensed music for promotional purposes.
The Online Showreels Licence came to be after APRA AMCOS noted the growing interest from production companies who wished to showcase their work online without having to remove the licensed original music used in the showcases.
Frank Rodi, Online and Mobile Licensing Manager at APRA AMCOS said: “There’s been a licensing gap online, with agencies showcasing examples of their work. In response we have developed a simple license scheme for music use in showreels, which has also incorporated feedback from the industry itself.”
The OSL fees start at $220 and go up to $550 including GST every financial year. A small price to pay to guarantee the use of original works in comparison to the infringements that would follow unlicensed use. APRA AMCOS is providing an introductory offer where new licenses can receive an extension of the initial licensing period from the date its paid, to June 30 2015.
