This is a low-cost solution for incorporating music into films of weddings and similar events where those films have been made by you solely for the purpose of domestic viewing. This licence is event specific and is offered in conjunction with the Australia Recording Industry Association (ARIA). It provides a one-stop licence for your music use on this type of video recordings.
Normally, obtaining copyright clearances to put recorded music onto a film or video would involve contacting the copyright holder for each song you want to use. The Domestic Use Video licence gives you a simple and cheap way of of ensuring that music creators are paid fairly for their work.
The licence covers the making of video recordings made for the purpose of supply to those who appear in them and for their private domestic use only. The licences permit music that is played at the event to be captured in the production and also for the synchronisation and dubbing from commercial recordings in post production. Specific terms and restrictions are set out in the licences.

- Corporate/training videos
- Commercially marketed audiovisual productions
- Audiovisual productions available for public purchase and or public screenings
- Audiovisual productions made for broadcast or internet transmission (including upload to sharing sites like YouTube or Vimeo)

If you are a business owner or videographer hired to film a wedding or similar events you can apply for single event licences or annual licences to cover your use of music in productions.
