Bars and Restaurants, to make their businesses more attractive to customers, often feature music or video, often broadcast radio or TV. We wrote about the issues for businesses that play the radio on their premises here. This week, Landslide, the magazine of the American Bar Association’s Intellectual Property Division, published an article that I wrote with Rachel Wolkowitz of our law firm, further exploring the rights issues – both for audio and video. The article, “Don’t Ruin a Perfect Evening: Get the Appropriate Licenses for Radio and TV in Restaurants and Bars,” is available here. So, if you are operating a business venture that wants to use audio or video to entertain its customers, take a look at this article for some of the issues that you should be considering.
