IMRO monitors the use of its repertoire in public. An IMRO Dual Music Licence gives a music user the right to play virtually any piece of copyright music within their business.
Under law, two distinct permissions are required by businesses in Ireland who play music – one which covers the public performance of the musical work on behalf of composers, songwriters and music publishers and the other which covers the public performance of sound recordings on behalf of record producers and performers. To date these licences have been administered separately by IMRO and PPI respectively. However, as of January 1st 2016, both distinct licences are now included in a Dual Music Licence administered by IMRO.
