WHAT IS A “PUBLIC PERFORMANCE LICENSE”?
A Public Performance License, also known as PPL is a license that is required to play radio familiar music that is published under royalty reporting agencies like ASCAP and BMI. Whenever you “play a song” that is heard on the radio, you are required to pay a fee. This is done with a special annual license called a “public performance license”. The fee is based on how many days you are open, how many hours per day, how many clients come through your facility, how the music is used (background or group fitness classes or both) and can become very expensive. Even more, if you don’t have a PPL and get caught playing copyright radio hit music in your facility, the fines are even more expensive!
IF I BUY MUSIC FROM THIS SITE, DO I NEED A PUBLIC PERFORMANCE LICENSE?
The simple answer is NO! All of our mixes are produced, published, managed & owned by Fit Beat Music. We control the rights and grant the rights to whomever we wish. Essentially, when you buy a mix from this site, you are granted the right to use that mix (or mixes) in your commercial facility for your group fitness classes and background throughout your gym without the fear of infringing on any copyright or cost of an annual PPL.

We do charge a special license fee to use the music for video production use. You can also license individual songs and create your own customized workout mix for your video including studio production by our team (custom bpm, lengths, mixing, mastering, etc). We make it easy, affordable and stress free.
