PRO music requires businesses to pay for performance licences (from PRS and PPL in the UK). It is the best-known type of music. PRO music is the mainstream music whose rights are held and managed by Performing Rights Organisations such as PRS (Performing Rights Society) and PPL (Phonographic Performance Limited). This is the music that everybody would recognise from the radio and the current charts.
In the UK, businesses wishing to play mainstream music (whether on the radio, a TV, a shop-bought CD or any other source) must have licences from both PRS and PPL. This is because the two organisation pay royalties to different people: PRS to the writers and publishers and PPL to the record labels (and through them, the artists). It is worth noting that even when a business has the relevant PRO licences, it is generally not permissible to download music from a download site because most of these sites have licences to offer tracks for domestic use only, not for use in a business premises. We have to have special licences from the PROs (called ‘dubbing licences’) in order to be allowed to provide the mainstream music for business use.
