Playing music to the public without a commercial streaming license is illegal because it infringes on the exclusive rights of the copyright owner of the music, such as the right to perform or play the music publicly. In most countries, playing copyrighted music publicly requires obtaining a license from the copyright owner or a collective rights management organization that represents the copyright owners. The fees collected from these licenses help ensure that the copyright owners receive compensation for the use of their works.
