Re: Your hold music.

You can blame SOCAN for the demise of the cool music. »www.socan.ca/tariff/SOC_11007_Ta···LISH_15B. It gets expensive really quick if a company has a lot of lines.
I use the Direct forum for everything so I don't have to wait on hold.

Informative link, thanks. I never really knew of the costs until now. Yikes! What about simply using the radio on hold instead?

We just have a radio station hooked up.

That's not allowed I'm afraid, unless you've licensed the station you're broadcasting. For example, if you wanted to play XM radio, you need a Business account which includes licensing to play the station on your MOH service.

Which is actually against socan rules as well technically.

XM/Sirius offers a service for businesses that covers copyrights, as it's part of the bill payment. It's only 35 bucks.

Pfft. they can pound sand. I think we have Boom 97.3 on it for a few years now. If someone ever bothers us i'll just put it back to the "beep beep" thing lol...

Curious, how exactly?

Odds are in his favour they won't.

I doubt it. it's a small company.

And if they do, i'll just stream some american stream off the net. SOCAN can suck it then.

Then SOCAN may be paying you a visit through their lawyers. The same thing happened to me when I was setting up a plant 15 years ago.

We switched to Public Domain music ASAP.
