Music at Work May Cost Money

Published tisdag 7 juli 2009 kl 13.36
Are you listening to music or not?

Staff listening to music at work may be expensive for their employer. According to the Swedish Performing Rights Society all companies and organisations with more than 40 employees have to have a licence for "work place music" if their staff listen to music on the radio or from a CD in the computer.

"A workplace is not private and therefore you need a licence if music is being played," says Susanne Bodin, communication manager at the Performing Rights Society, to daily Dagens Nyheter.

The Society, which represents authors and publishers of music in Sweden, has already sent a bill of $ 5000 to Stockholm County Court, which has turned to the Government for guidance.
