How can I tell if my customers really like the music we’re playing?
The RX Music Voting App gives you the ability to engage your customers, soliciting direct feedback on the music that is being played on site.
Can I legally use a streaming service as background music in my business establishment?
Music streaming services are developed for consumers, not businesses, and licensed for private use only. A Public Performance License (PPL) is needed to play music in all public places.
Is it legal to play music that I paid for, such as CDs, MP3s or digital files for background music?
When you purchase music, whether it be digital files or a CD, you are purchasing a license to “rent” the content for yourself. No matter how much music you purchase for yourself, that music is prohibited to play in public. Once it’s played in a commercial setting without a proper license, it violates copyright law since it’s then considered a public performance, which requires a separate license.
What is copyright?
A copyright is the exclusive right given to the creator of a creative work to reproduce or license that work to another person or company. This can be anything from a song to a book. In terms of music copyright, one of those exclusive rights is to earn money from that intellectual property. If you as a business are playing music without permission, you are directly committing copyright infringement and can be held accountable.
What exactly is considered a commercial setting?
A commercial setting is any space that is commonly open to the public including, but not limited to, retail stores, bars and restaurants, malls, meeting rooms, trade shows, office buildings, and even on hold music while your customers wait.
How can I get the licenses for playing music in a business?
First, you need to be aware of the performance rights organizations (PRO’s) in which artists, songwriters, musicians and publishers are enrolled. There are three main PROs in the U.S. - ASCAP, BMI, GMR and one in Canada - SOCAN. Should you choose to purchase your own license from only one PRO, for example, that license permits you to use copyrighted music represented by that PRO only, but not the others. It’s important to know that many songs have more than one songwriter, composer, and publisher. In many cases, they belong to a different performing rights organization. Therefore, obtaining a blanket license with each PRO to cover all of your tracks is recommended. Obtaining these licenses can often be expensive and generating and submitting monthly reports can be a lengthy, tedious process. The best (and easiest) course of action would be using a company that these licensing fees on your behalf, like RX Music!
What happens if I play music in my business without paying for the necessary licenses?
If you do not obtain the necessary permissions you can be held liable for damages. Industry representatives walk into thousands of businesses every day looking for those operating in contravention of copyright laws. If you are caught playing music illegally (not by a licensed provider), PRO’s, labels, songwriters and publishers can issue a fine to that business of up to $150,000 USD per song.
Do DJs or Live Bands need to pay for music licensing?
Not necessarily. In the case of live entertainment, the venue is almost always responsible for securing the proper license(s). PRO’s do not provide the option for live entertainment acts such as DJ’s and bands to purchase public performance licenses. Licensing requirements also change should the business be charging admission to an event where music is played as entertainment.
Is there any hardware I need to install?
As a part of your RX Music Service Subscription you will receive our exclusive MUSICbox, which has the capacity and flexibility to meet your sonic needs, from large environments to small intimate spaces.
My internet connection is not the greatest, how does the RX Music service work with a weak internet connection?
Your RX Music subscription is not reliant on a strong internet connection - but it certainly helps. We’re not a streaming service. If for some reason internet is not available, your music will keep on playing. No more buffering or waiting for your internet provider to fix a modem. It’s not advised to have your station offline forever - your RX Music hardware will have to connect to our servers once in a while to receive music, software and licensing updates.

No, our mobile app allows you to control your music wherever you are on site.
