How to avoid problems with collecting societies.

To avoid problems with your rights management organisation, you should only consider using Sonos speakers if you can ensure and prove that your Sonos system plays only royalty-free music.

We recommend using a closed system that does not support the use of licensed music.
You can set up such a system using our hardware players, for example. You do not need Sonos speakers to do this.
