License In Canada
We are pleased to announce that beginning in 2000, AVLA will be able to offer its DJ licenses the ability to copy sound recordings onto computer hard drives. At this time, Universal Music will not be participating in this license category through AVLA. This means that if you wish to get the new Digital DJ license from AVLA, you will not be permitted to copy any of Universal's sound recordings. We hope that Universal Music will elect to participate in the Digital DJ license in the near future.
The rate for the Digital DJ license offered by AVLA for 2000 will be $175.00, plus $25.00 administration fee, totaling $200.00 (plus applicable taxes).
Please note that the Digital DJ fee takes into consideration the exclusion of Universal Music's sound recordings. Should Universal Music elect to take part in this license, the fee will then increase to $250.00, plus administration fee of $25.00, totaling $275.00.
AVLA has offered to amend the agreements of the CDJA and CARDMO to allow these DJ associations to offer this type of license to their members. We do not know at this time if either association will take AVLA up on this offer. Please contact your association to discuss this matter with them.
In the event that your DJ association does not amend it's agreement with AVLA and you want to copy music onto computer hard drives, you will then need to license directly with AVLA. To become a direct AVLA licensed DJ, please contact our office.
