Music Canada has released (hat tip: Sundeep Chauhan – @CopyrightReport) a handy publication entitled Licensing Digital Music in Canada, which, starting on page 6, provides useful charts and links to describe what licenses are needed to provide different types of online music services (e.g., for digital downloads, talk to the record labels, SOCAN and CMRRA).  Contact information is provided for all the relevant copyright collectives, the major labels and a slew of indie labels.
