Can I play music in class?



The Copyright Act allows you to play a sound recording or live radio broadcasts in class as long as it is:

  • for educational purposes,
  • not for profit,
  • on Red Deer Polytechnic premises, and,
  • before an audience consisting primarily of students.

However, if you want to use music for non-educational purposes (e.g. as background music, at a conference, or in an athletic facility), a license must be obtained from the copyright collectives SOCAN and Re:Sound.

Check our guide for suggestions on finding copyright-friendly images, videos, and music.
