The terms and conditions you agree to when you sign up to a streaming music service, such as Apple Music®, Spotify®, Deezer® or Napster® specifically state music is licensed for personal use only and not public broadcast or commercial use.
Using playlists from a personal music playlist in a commercial environment or business, without an MSB2B licence (this is not the same licence as TheMusicLicence issued by PPL/PRS) puts you and your business in breach of UK copyright law.
The Inside Track
Personal use music licences do not carry over to commercial environments. This means if you are playing a personal Spotify, Apple Music playlist or other streaming content playlist, without being licenced, you or the business owner are breaking the law and could be prosecuted.
