Advice / Resources on Streaming music for Educational purposes

Postby Baldo » Wed Apr 22, 2020 2:14 pm

Hi,

I am looking at streaming music /video online for meditation classes. Initially these will be live classes only and I will be using copyrighted music.

I am based in Germany from where I will host the classes and my audience is in Europe, the UK and USA, mainly.

I know that I must get some kind of license to stream the music that I will be using, (the video will just be of me or stock footage).

I am not charging for the classes (at the moment), although I might in future.

Can someone point me to where I can learn about this please.

Do i need a full on broadcast license? Essentially that is what I will be doing. There will be no live interaction with my audience.

Please do not suggest that I use royalty free or other such music. There are specific tracks that I want to use, so this is not an option.

Many thanks
Baldo

GEMA are the main collection agency in Germany so I'd start with talking to them.
