Agents may act on behalf of groups of performers

             (1)  This section applies in respect of all members of a group of performers who have an interest in the copyright in a sound recording of a live performance.

             (2)  All members of the group are taken to have granted a licence or permission (however described) to a person:

                     (a)  to do an act comprised in the copyright; or

                     (b)  to do any other act in relation to the copyright;

if an agent of the group, acting within the scope of his or her actual or apparent authority, has granted a licence or permission to the person to do the act.

Note:          The person may still need to obtain the licence or permission of other owners of the copyright before doing the act.
