Yes. We have a “fair usage” share policy. This means you are allowed to share the music with your immediate family such as your parents or siblings (those who live in the same house).
However, outside of your immediate circle of family, we ask that you encourage people to buy our music if they want to use it.
Having worked in music licensing for many years, I understand how the digital music landscape has changed the way music is consumed and shared, and that households now share music with each other via phones, tablets and computers.
However, to continue enjoying great music, we must ensure creators are paid for their artistry. The same goes for the writers of books, painters of paintings and other art forms.
