Radio channels pay performing rights royalties for the music they play that is protected by copyright. The sum payable by radio operators is affected by the amount of music they play and, in the case of commercial radio channels, the channel’s revenue.
Television companies broadcast content not only via free-to-air channels, but also via pay-TV channels and overe Internet. The companies pay performing right royalties for any copyrighted music included in the content they broadcast.
The price of the licence is a certain percentage of the Internet radio’s revenue. If the radio has little or no revenue, they will pay a minimum fee, which is determined by the amount of music played and the number of potential simultaneous listeners.
