Why Join ARIA?
As a member, you can...
Be part of the ARIA music awards
Members are eligible to nominate Australian recorded music product for the annual Awards, and have priority ticketing privileges.
Benefit from Anti-piracy
An anti-piracy unit has been established to investigate counterfeiting and other copyright abuses, and assist members to protect their rights.
Participate in our reproduction
licensing program, and benefit from collective licences
ARIA provides, in certain
cases, a "non exclusive" licensing service on behalf of
participating sound recording rights holders (ARIA Licensors)
for various uses of copyrights, including the reproduction of sound
recordings and music videos by suppliers of music services and television
production companies. ARIA collects licence fees on behalf of members
and thus reduces individual administration costs.
Subscribe to chart information
ARIA chart information
and weekly sales reports are available to members on a subscription
basis. Members are also entitled to claim accreditation for their
sound recordings (i.e. Gold, Platinum and Diamond status).
Access to industry data
ARIA releases important sales and statistical information, research, archival and other market data twice a year, which is made available to members upon request.
Benefit from educational resources
and build networks
ARIA periodically hosts member seminars and forums on a variety of issues relevant to the industry.
