Makers of sound recordings have the exclusive right to reproduce and authorize the reproduction of their sound recordings. CONNECT Music Licensing/SOPROQ issues licenses to all Canadian commercial radio stations that reproduce sound recordings in connection with a station's over-the-air broadcasting operations. A CONNECT Music Licensing/SOPROQ licence enables radio broadcasters to choose from millions of sound recordings without having to obtain clearances for each track individually.
