Usage Description

This tariff applies to the communicating to the public of sound recordings via Telephone Music On Hold Systems as background music.

Apart from specific types of communicating sound recordings to the public that SAMPRA does not classify as background music and which are licensed under separate tariffs, all other types of public performance are classified as background music.

This licence does not permit the rerecording, editing, dubbing, copying, or transfer of copyright material. If the telephone music on hold system uses a digital memory facility (which requires a copy of the sound recording to be made), the licensee will require an additional licence for the mechanical reproduction. Please contact SAMPRA for more information on this.
