Many people don’t associate music with corporate America. But music is used in many corporations in a variety of ways. Not only is it played in the background to enhance the company’s image to its customers and improve employee productivity, it is also used in employee training, fitness and warehouse facilities as well as offsite and onsite parties, picnics, events and meetings. A lot of corporate music users aren’t aware that the use of music in any of these ways requires permission from the copyright owners. These are the songwriters, composers and music publishers of the works being performed.
