Custom music services are a key component
of a unique branding solution

Music that gets played anywhere publicly needs to be licensed, whether it be a restaurant, ice skating rink, or a general business. Music licensing is something that is happening constantly all around us, even the music you listen to on the radio is licensed and paid for by the radio station. We do the work for you and ensure that the owners of copyrights on musical works are compensated for the use of their work.

Keeping up with complex music licensing requirements is nearly impossible for today’s businesses, and there can be a lot of confusion surrounding playing music in public places. But, noncompliance with copyright laws means a risk of legal action in federal court and potentially costly penalties. At Seeburg, we not only design and deliver powerful music and music video solutions, we take care of the licensing so you can focus on running your business.

Differences between Tariff 15A & Tariff 16 Licences

If you use background music in your business, a SOCAN licence is required. This licence, which is certified by the Copyright Board of Canada, gives you permission to use copyright-protected musical works from anywhere around the world. The music licence fees collected are distributed as royalties to SOCAN members who are songwriters, composers, lyricists and music publishers.

There are two ways of getting your licence. You can get it directly with SOCAN as a Background Music licence under Tariff 15A, or through a subscription with a Background Music Supplier under Tarrif16. The differences between the two licences are outlined below.

Some facts about copyright:
  • You can’t copyright an idea or a fact.
  • An email is copyrighted as soon as it sent.
  • Anything created before 1922 is in the public domain, and it is estimated that 85% of works completed between 1923 and 1963 are also.
  • Copyright on something only lasts a certain period of time. In Canada, the time period for copyright is 50 years after the author’s death, then it becomes public domain and anyone can use it.
  • If you wrote a piece of “X-files Fanfiction” using the characters Mulder and Scully, you technically are committing copyright infringement. But most authors and producers of TV shows turn a blind eye to fanfiction, as they don’t want to hurt their fans, and if anything, it increases their popularity!
