    Hi All

    Can anyone tell me if there are any copyright restrictions on putting sound clips of a concert on a band website

    The best people to help with that one would be either the PRS or the MCPS. I would have said not if it was your own band's performance, but maybe there are other issues I don't know about.

    In a word, yes.

    All MP3 type clips of any performance have to be licenced through the MCPS / PRS as Mike has said.

    For your purposes, you'll most likely be looking at a Limited Online Exploitation Licence, likely to come in at Band A which is £100+vat per year.

    Search it out on their Website at http://www.mcps.co.uk

    If you made the recordings yourself, you own the copyright, if you didn't then you need permission of the recording company. In extreme cases you may also need a PPL.

    Hi thanks for the advice.

    The recording was done by my mum at a concert so does that mean I am ok to put it on the site

    You'll still need the MCPS / PRS licence to represent the Copyright holders of the repertoire.
