Why should I pay for music?
In these days of smart phones and iPods, some have chosen to become their own music source and DJ. However, playing music from such sources at a commercial business is against the law, and makes your business subject to music rights fees from ASCAP, BMI, and SESAC. For most businesses, designating someone as DJ is problematic and gets old after a couple of weeks. Legal ramifications aside, most important is the experience people get when they are in your business or establishment. Most businesses strongly focus on the visual senses; but what about sound?

Is the music from the radio, smart phone, or iPod, congruent with your business?

  • Does it set the desired ambiance?
  • Does the music sometime stop without warning because the CD or other music source runs out?
  • Are customers generally content/satisfied with the music, or are complaints common?
  • Is there disagreement among staff concerning about what kind of music should be playing?
