Music copyright is complex, with rights existing in:
- the composition
- the performance
- the arrangement
- the mechanical recording and transfer
- the published edition, and
- the lyrics/libretto (if any).
The Music Licence Agreement allows students to make audio and/or video recordings which include copyright music/sound for education purposes, provided they are made as part of a course and are only played in classrooms to an audience under instruction. Students can also perform copyright music for educational purposes in classroom settings.
