Claim that Tune: Music Licensing for Nonprofits

Nonprofit organizations use recorded music for a variety of purposes: as part of a performance, during after school classes, creating the sound track for an outreach video, or even as background music at a gala. But use of recorded music without the proper permission – a “license” – can subject your organization to payment of money damages and reputational harm for copyright infringement.

Learning Objectives: This webinar will explain the different types of licenses that are needed when music is used by nonprofits, and when and how to obtain them.

For nonprofit leaders and program officers, particularly of community arts and after school organizations, as well as development and communications managers.
