This is great short interview with Michael Owen. I listened in on Micheal’s presentation at the Campfire as I wanted to learn more about music licensing at events. Did you know? If you are playing a CD, a digital download or streaming music, in you home you do not require a fee. However, bare in mind that if you do the same in a meeting or event set up, it does require a fee.
