Re: Client not happy with music limitations

Clive why not simply purchase a prs licence for your delivered dvds? Then your clients can have their favourite music - does the prs not operate in NI?

Why would you bother licensing for a personal home-viewed DVD. Wheres the risk of being sued there?
I put my highlights online, and as already highlighted, the PRS license doesn't cover that - and I think the email I got from PRS was wrong.

Re: Client not happy with music limitations

Hi Clive - but are you telling the couples they can't have their favourite songs on their DVD? sure the PRS licence doesn't cover online publishing but they can have what they want on the DVDs. If you want to remain legal then get a licence for each wedding.

I can see how avoiding this seems a no risk option but what if some of your clients took it upon thmeselves to upload to facebook/you tube whatever and somehow landed you in it?

Just buy licences and put the 7 on your package prices, and then stick to royalty free music for your online advertising but also mention popular music choice is available for the DVDs.
