Alternative Dispute Resolution
APRA (on behalf of OneMusic) provide an Alternative Dispute Resolution facility for faster and less expensive resolution of certain disputes with licensees or potential licensees.
Disputes may relate to the terms of the licence, whether a licence is required at all, or how much music is being played at the licensee's premises. These disputes can nearly always be referred to the Copyright Tribunal or go through the conventional judicial process to be resolved. However, we realise that the Copyright Tribunal and any judicial process can be expensive and time consuming dispute resolution forums, which is why we provide an Alternative Dispute resolution process.
