Are you aware playing background music in a business for the purpose of entertaining your customers requires a license? Streaming any of the music services seen on the right without a license can get you into serious trouble. In fact, none of them are legally allowed to be used in your business except for Pandora. And that's only if you subscribe to their business service. The others are strictly illegal to stream at your business. See this blog post by Entrepreneur to help you better understand if you’re at risk with your business.
Once you know more, you’ll be able to protect yourself from heavy legal fees. But now what? Well, you need to chose a music service for businesses. Popular names like Pandora and SiriusXM both offer a business services. There are others as well, Mood, Cloud Cover, Rockbot and my favorite, Custom Channels.
Custom Channels is a small business in Colorado. Each person in the company is a knowledgeable music fan. When you call the company, you get a human on the phone. They’ve done such a great job with their service they’ve attracted Chipotle Restaurants and Whole Foods as clients. What makes them special is the lack of repetitiveness and the huge music library. Everyday is a new day of hearing a fresh mix of great music. For more info, check out Custom Channels website.
