Performing, radio broadcasting, and streaming

A licence is required to perform, broadcast, or stream Oxford University Press’s music.

Examples of frequent types of use include:

  • Performance of a work in a public concert
  • Broadcast of a work on a radio station
  • Streaming a recording or performance of a work from a website

If a work is written for the stage (e.g. an opera or ballet) or is written for concert performance but will be used with staged action, lighting, or dance, the type of work is referred to below as a Grand Right work. If the work is written for concert or church use, and is to be performed in a concert situation, the type of work is referred to below as a Small Right work.
