COPYRIGHT INFORMATION - MUSIC COPYRIGHT
All images, text, music and sounds used in the videos must either be students'own original work, or have been used with the appropriate copyright permissions.
If requested, written permission for any third-party content included in the videos may be requested.
If students have used, or plan to use, music that is not their own (and that they have not already obtained permission to use), teachers may have to to seek synchronisation rights for them. This licensing will be done directly by the copyright holders, rather than by a central organisation.

OTHER ORGANISATIONS AND RESOURCES
There are usually contacts in Australia, even if the music is not Australian. Any decisions about fees or any other aspect of the project will need to be negotiated between you and the copyright holder.
There is no central listing of copyright owners, as they are not required to be part of one, but there are various ways to look for the information. If you have enquiries about specific pieces of music, you may use the research facility provided by APRA AMCOS. You can find this on the APRA AMCOS website.
