Re:Sound issues licenses to all Canadian commercial radio stations that use sound recordings as part of their programming, as well as Canada’s public radio broadcaster, the CBC. Radio broadcasting includes many forms of delivery, from traditional AM and FM broadcasting to pay audio and satellite radio. A Re:Sound licence enables radio broadcasters to choose from millions of sound recordings without having to obtain clearance for each track individually.

Re:Sound will also soon issue licenses for the increasing number of services that are now offering online simulcasting of radio stations signals and/or webcasting services. Please refer to the online section for more information on the proposed rates.
