Mood Media and Stingray Group, including their related bodies corporate, propose to collectively negotiate the terms and conditions of music licence arrangements to be entered into between each of them and APRA AMCOS, including licence fees.
Mood Media and Stingray Group lodged a separate notification in relation to a proposal to collectively bargain with APRA AMCOS on 11 February 2019 (CB10000463). On 28 March 2019 the ACCC decided not to object to notification CB10000463.

On 4 July 2019 the ACCC decided not to object to the notification. The ACCC decided to allow the immunity provided by the notification to remain in force for 10 years from the date it was lodged. Accordingly, the notification came into force on 14 June 2019 and will remain in force until 30 May 2029, unless it is withdrawn or revoked.
