what about those having a live band or live performance? attended a wedding recently where the music is played by a keyboardist and violin.
Call RIPS to check
Still + Motion Picture Fanatic ...
Question: I get all my songs through a PAID website and the website is a legal website i.e. I bought those songs and music via internet. If I played those songs in weddings, am I violating the law?
COMPASS created a stir in recent years when they went to catch store owners playing CNY music in Malaysia.... sigh....
Please get your facts straight before making public announcements and sighing over it

hmm.. it suddenly occur to me, what about those stores in the shopping center and the shops along the streets that are playing musics/songs in the store via their hi-fi/speakers? are they suppose pay for copyrights?
man, it is going to be so quiet everywhere...
My apologies then.... for getting it wrong.

Hi, chanced upon this old thread, would like to know if any part-time wedding photographer pays the SGD2000 annual fee for the music copyrights to RIAS. Or do you use the royal free music? does any of your couples dislike those royal free musics?
There are also MPS and RIPS, both of which need to be covered if any music represented by them are used in the montage. If your montage is soundless, you can bypass both of these. But soundless montage is no longer the "in" thing. It is reminiscent of the days when people just use a computer to run a looping slideshow of pictures, and the venue just played any elevator music they have.
