DIRECT LICENSING GUIDELINES (Public performance and transmission rights)
1. Our direct licensing guidelines
- These are the direct licensing guidelines of Anna Shelley (we/us/our). This document contains information about licensing our sound recordings and music videos. It sets out the procedure to be followed when you are making an enquiry about direct licensing for public performance or transmission.
- An alternative to licensing the sound recording or music video directly from us is to obtain a blanket licence from the Phonographic Performance Company of Australia (PPCA). If you obtain the PPCA blanket licence then you will not require a licence from us because the blanket licence gives you permission, within the terms of the licence, to play any recording from the PPCA catalogue which covers over 5,000 recording labels including our sound recordings and music videos. Go to ppca.com.au or call PPCA on (02) 8569 1111 to find out more.
2. Types of licences offered for sound recordings and music videos
- We provide non-exclusive licences. This means we can offer the same licences to other people. For example, if we licence your restaurant to play our sound recordings and/or music videos, we can also licence any other businesses (including other restaurants) that wish to play our sound recordings and/or music videos.
- We offer licences for the following purposes:
- transmission licences for our sound recordings and music videos. You will need a transmission licence if you intend to communicate the sound recording or music video to the public, for example by way of radio, television or the internet;
- public performance licences for our sound recordings and music videos. You will need a public performance licence if you intend to play the sound recording or music video in public, for example by playing a CD at your business premises;
- synchronisation licences for film, television, online video, gaming, mobile applications, and other multimedia projects, on a case by case basis. You will need to contact Anna Shelley (here) directly to negotiate terms and conditions.
- These licences are separate from any licence required in respect of the underlying copyright in the music and lyrics on the sound recording or music video. Unless the underlying musical works are no longer protected by copyright, you will also need to obtain permission to use the underlying musical works (including any lyrics). Permission to use musical works can be sought from the Australasian Performing Rights Association (APRA) and the Australasian Mechanical Copyright Owners Society (AMCOS). These two organisations operate from the same office and have responsibility for different types of licensing. See apra.com.au or call 1300 852 388.

- your contact details;
- a brief description of your business (eg café, gym, radio station, film festival);

- After speaking with you, we may require additional information. Once you have provided us with any additional information we require we will provide you with a quote for the licence fee.

Please note that we do not provide any licences free of charge
