When using live music in your businesses, you are required to pay the performing rights organizations (PROs) directly.
Rockbot can only cover the licensing for music played via our service and within the limitations outlined in our Subscriber Terms. If Rockbot is your only source of recorded music you shouldn't need to pay directly for that category on the PRO license. This typically results in a significant savings on the fees you are required to pay directly to the PROs.
A sample ASCAP license for bars and restaurants can be found here. In addition to ASCAP, utilizing live music requires paying BMI, SESAC & GMR, which have similar fees.
