Overlooked? Music in the showroom of service bay…
This is another topic that we frequently get asked about and is something that is often overlooked. Do we need a music license if we have the radio on in the service bay and/or the showroom?
The answer is quite simply yes. What you are in fact doing is paying a royalty to the performers who create the music you are listening to. It doesn’t matter by what means you are playing music, radio, streaming, tv, vinal, tape or cd. The question is, is the music being played so that a number of people can hear it?
If the answer is yes, then you need a licence.
You can get a licence from The Performing Rights Society (PRS) these two links will help you.
