So, when can music be played without a JAMMS license?

Any music played during the course of religious worship is permissible without a license from JAMMS. If music is played at a concert held at a place of worship, however, a JAMMS license is required.

Similarly, music played at a non-profit educational establishment for the purpose of teaching is exempt. Music played at such an establishment for fundraising or other non-teaching purposes, however, requires a JAMMS license.
