I read that the copyright act in nz requires a shop owner to get a licence from apra to play the radio for customers in his/her shop. what if you had an ipod and were playing songs you downloaded? would this be exempt from needing a licence?

If you play music in a public place you need a licence. End of story. Either from AMCOS or APRA.



You may get away with doing this but odds are eventually you'll get a letter asking for you to pay up.

Its a relatively small cost, and the rules are quite clear.
