Insights: Performing & Releasing Other People's Music

Event Published Friday 1 March 2024

Performing music by other artists you love is fun, allows you to put your own new twist on a well-known song and can expand your audience. But if the music isn’t entirely your own it can also mean there are other considerations:

  • What is a cover song, verse an arrangement, verses a remix? When can you register your versions with APRA AMCOS?
  • Do you need permission to perform live or record cover songs?
  • Can you upload your version of another artist’s music online?
  • What about remixes?
  • Can you use another writer’s text or lyrics?
  • What about the public domain?

We'll be covering all the essentials to know when working with other people's words and music.
