That's interesting, how much does it cost to join and as a member what music can you use for your slideshows?

Chris, click on the "Join" header in the link I put up earlier and it gives you all the details on cost. There are also the details on what the license permits and doesn't, better you read that than I try to remember and mis-inform you Smile

Cut your losses and buy a lifetime licence from PRS MCPS for £15?

The Limited Manufacture Licence is quick, affordable and grants you ‘blanket’ permission to legally use any music in your own CDs, DVDs or videos (and other formats) – that’s any music, from any genre, by any artist including the big names; from Elvis and The Beatles to Lily Allen and Duffy.

Does that cover the playback of videos/dvds/Av shows etc in public access areas such as church halls, or Council owned venues?

Basically there are a number of different licences involved.

The one Chris mentions allows you you use recorded music in an AV or video for non-commercial purposes - but not to play it in public.

If you play your AV sequence to an audience in a church hall, council property, sports club or whatever, then the owners of the venue also need their own licence. Even a hairdresser's shop playing the radio for customers needs a PRS licence.

That's what I wondered. The IAC licence covers us for that use, so probably explains why it's more expensive.

This is the 1st time I have used the ephotozine forum and I was amazed at the response I got. I want to thank all the people who replied. From the advice I have received I have decided to update my Pictures to exe software. Thank you all again for your comments.

You won't be sorry Laurie, PTE version 7 is awesome. (& that's from a ProShow Gold user!)

Thanks Adrian your comments are reassuring, I originally bought P2E 5 from Barry Beckham and I have received several updates free but there are things that are not included with the free update so it seems only right to continue to use the program that I am most familiar with.

AFAICS Private use or non-paying audience, PRS licence covers you the same? http://www.theiac.org.uk/iac/copyright/copyright-avoid-problems.html

New member, first post containing a link, turns out to be spam, who could have guessed or prevented such a thing. Other websites have systems, epz shut the door after the horse has bolted Smile
