Do I Need a Licence to Play a Radio at Work?

Answer

Yes. Radio stations (including news and talk radio) use copyright sound recordings (such as theme tunes and background music during programmes) so any radio broadcasts within your business premises constitute a licensable public performance of copyright sound recordings.

To play music from a radio at the workplace, an employer must obtain a music licence from the Performance Rights Society (PRS).This is important so that they can stay within the law.
