Help! – Music copyright buffs

Background:

We want to put together a short PowerPoint presentation slideshow with music to be used, first of all, at an investor meeting. And then, this PPT may get a spot on the website and perhaps be emailed around as a promotional material.

Questions:

1. If it is just for the presentation at the meeting, do I need to get permission from the record company?

2. If it is to be put online, I’m sure I will need to get a permission for that. But is there a catalog of available music I can use? Or maybe a royalty-free sort of thing like they have with photos?

Any comments or links to more resources would be much appreciated.
