APRA|AMCOS offers a low-cost solution for incorporating music into films of weddings and similar events where those films have been made by you solely for the purpose of domestic viewing. This licence is event specific and is offered in conjunction with the Australia Recording Industry Association (ARIA) to provide a simple one-stop licence for the separate rights in the underlying works and associated sound recordings and gives you access to a world of music for your wedding and domestic video recordings.
Normally, obtaining copyright clearances to synchronise and dub (reproduce) recorded music onto a film or video would involve contacting each of the rights owners in each of the works and sound recordings that you want to use. However, the AMCOS/ARIA Domestic Use Video Licence gives you a simple and cheap way of complying with your copyright obligations.
Please note that these licences do not cover the use of music in the following types of audiovisual productions:
If you are recording music for these or similar purposes, see Music in Advertisements and Film
