When you play music in your business, you need to think about two different fees. The first fee covers the rights to stream music in a commercial setting. This fee also makes caching possible, giving you the possibility to temporarily store the music content to lessen the traffic on the network. When you subscribe to Spotify Business, we use part of your subscription fee to pay record labels, artists and publishers for that first right.
The second fee covers the public performance right, which you need to pay if you play music from a radio, a CD player, or from a streaming service like ours. Contact your country’s collecting society, which represents the public performance rights holders for public performance for more information. They are STIM and SAMI in Sweden, Teosto and Gramex in Finland, and TONO and Gramo in Norway.
If you want more information about rights and our service, check out our General Terms and Conditions and the sections entitled “Terms and Conditions Relating to Rights Holders” and “Public Performance and Royalty Payments.”
