Streaming Audio Books: how to get license

Post by baroim » Tue Jun 01, 2010 1:23 pm

Hi All

First of all thanks for having me here, lets get straight to the question. I am planning to build audio books library where people can only listen by means of streaming, no file download etc. Obviously I would need to get permission for this. I would imagine the library would have a range of title which produced by different publishers. Is there any organization that deal with this sort of thing (similar to PRS) to get the streaming license. OR if this is not the case, what would be the procedures to get the license to stream the audio books? Thanks in advance.

You could try the Publishers Licensing Association here: http://www.pls.org.uk/default.aspx.
Since the Audiobook Publishing Association closed down in February of this year, the Publishers Association http://www.publishers.org.uk/en/home/ seems to have taken on their role as the general trade body for publishers of written, audio and digital works.
