Music often is an integral part of conventions and meetings, whether incorporated during general sessions to support the overarching message or meeting theme, in breakouts in entry music, in PowerPoint and video presentations, at networking events or simply as background. Not every musical performance requires a license fee. Playing a CD, digital download or streaming music you purchased in your car or listening to it in the privacy of your own home does not require a fee to be paid. Yet, using that same source in a meeting setting as described above will likely require a license fee. Music is like all personal property – when you want to borrow it from someone you must ask permission. All public performances, even most non-profit ones, must be licensed.
