If you are broadcasting or playing sound recordings in public, a SAMPRA licence is required.

SAMPRA issues licences to radio broadcasters who use sound recordings (records, tapes, CDs, USBs, Downloads, etc.) in SAMPRA’s repertoire in their transmissions.

SAMPRA also issues licences to shops, restaurants, pubs and clubs and other music users who render sound recordings in SAMPRA’s repertoire audible in public.

A SAMPRA licence enables music users to play literally millions of sound recordings on their business premises.
