Playmysong and music licensing

We got a great comment for our Arctic Startup article from Richard and as many people have asked this from us, here’s the question and our answer:

Question:

Playmysong offers customers the ability to choose what songs they hear while shopping - available in Europe for now and uses Spotify - curious about the licensing model? -‘

Our answer:

Our licensing model is the following: 

For private use in homes and private events (weddings etc.) our users use either our Spotify app or their own music library. Spotify’s license terms cover the use of their music in non-business locations. 

For business use in bars, coffee shops etc. there are two options:

1. The venue can use it’s own music library and pay the associated license fees to copyright associations by themselves, as they would have to do even if they would not use the Playmysong app.

2. In Finland we have partnered with Mood Media, which provides a fully licensed in-store music system for venues. Mood Media offers Playmysong as an add-on to their existing service and and these cases the music licensing is handled by Mood Media and the venue in the same way as they would do even if they would not use Playmysong.

As we respect music copyrights, we like to expand our service via integrations and partnerships with companies that have already taken care of the required licensing. We will launch interesting new partnerships in the near future.

Any plans to add a skip option to the app for the jukebox owner? This would be helpful for when someone plays a song nobody wants and you're not near your computer. Currently this requires another app in addition to PlayMySong.

Thanks for your message. Yes, we plan to add this in the future. Most likely iOS first and Android a bit after that. 

How do I control my spotify jukebox with the iOS App? Am I missing something?

Hi Tom! Thanks for your message! If you are “hosting” Playmysong jukebox with Spotify with your Mac/PC, then this video explains the idea:

The only difference is that the iOS app has been completely updated and you can find the latest & much better version from here:

If you are using an iOS device to “host” your Playmysong jukebox, then here are the instructions on how to get it going…

How do you log in on the Spotify app? All I can find is the big 'connect with facebook' button do you have to register somewhere?

Thanks for your message. In the current version you can register to Playmysong by clicking the “Connect With Facebook” button. We will have a new release soon with the option of creating an account with email / password as well.

Playmysong + Spotify + Your Wedding

Following on the heels of the most romantic holiday of the year, we’re excited to talk about another potential use for Playmysong. You’ve used it at your house parties, so why not use it at one of the most important parties you’ll ever have- your wedding! 

Various wedding blogs have written about using Spotify “as your wedding DJ.” With the Playmysong Spotify app you can take that once step further and allow Spotify and your guests to act as the wedding DJ’s. Weddings are all about you as the couple, and your friends and family who are there to celebrate with you, so this is a cool way to allow everyone to be fully involved in the celebration!

Depending on the format of your wedding and when you’d like certain music to be played, we recommend Playmysong for the reception. You and your fiancé can generate a really large playlist with all your favorite songs, and guests can queue up songs as they’re eating/drinking/dancing. The social features of Playmysong would be great to use here as well. While guests are choosing songs, they can “dedicate” a special song to the happy couple, leave shout outs, “like” requests, and tell everyone about the music they’re celebrating to at your wedding.

Here’s the low-down:

  • Once you have Spotify, open it, click “App Finder”, select the Playmysong app, and “Add it”
  • Then, create a wedding playlist on Spotify (the sky’s the limit with the amount of songs you want available for guests to choose from)
  • Use this playlist to launch a jukebox within the App
  • We can help you customize your photo, jukebox name, and more! (Ex. “John and Sue’s Wedding!” with one of your engagement photos)
  • We can also help set you up with a “big screen” so guests can see what songs are being selected and played!
  • Wherever you’ve launched Spotify (on your computer or on your phone) will become your music source. Hook this up to a sound system with speakers.
  • Then, wedding guests will download the Playmysong app onto their mobile phones (tell them this in advance), click on your jukebox (“John and Sue’s Wedding!”) and start choosing songs. Everyone gets to be the DJ 

If you have any questions, leave us feedback, a comment on this post, or send us an email at hello@playmysong.com. Happy wedding planning!
