When do you really need
a Music License?

You do not always need a copyright license or permission for using recorded music, lyrics or musical compositions. While some uses require you to pay and get a license, many uses do not require the permission of the copyright owner. Most social events, student activities, ceremonies, private uses, etc., do not require copyright licenses from record labels or organisations like Novex, IPRS, PPL and so on.
