TORONTO – Think your business is immune from paying music royalties? It’s not. If caught, you’ll face lawsuits and tens of thousands of dollars in fines.
Last March, 15 copyright infringements were filed against bars and restaurants. Games have even been yanked off shelves because they didn’t pay the proper music royalties.
“It’s not worth the gamble,” said Music for Productions President Jean Anfossi, “These people could have saved a lot of headaches and money if they just paid a few dollars a day to legally play music. This is where my company can be a big help.”
The company is Canada’s first on-line, full-service supplier of music for productions and is celebrating 15 years of business this month. It’s quite an accomplishment since it’s a small fish surviving in a pond filled with 500-pound sharks.
“To keep competitive, we’ve reduced our prices but still have reliable customer service that the large companies in the music licensing world can’t offer.”
Corporate customers such as Sunwing Canada, also use MFP for music supervision services, song selection for their advertising campaigns and copyrights clearances services.
Music for Productions has competitive prices on its revised website for production music libraries of more than 300,000 tracks. It also offers custom scoring and music supervision services catered to businesses with small budgets.
“Our reduced subscriptions prices start at $9 to $89 per month and are based on personal, non-profit, events and business use. Enterprises requiring additional services, can contact us for a same day quote. You can also take advantage of our 25 percent discount this month,” said Anfossi.
The company has been seeing an overwhelming demand for music related to the pandemic. It just released a new album on their Impulsion label called ‘Pandemia’.
