Hotels to pay royalties on music - The Irish Times - Fri, Dec 14, 2012
'The operators of hotels, guesthouses and bed & breakfasts will have to pay royalties for any copyright music played in guest bedrooms [in Ireland]. [...] Under the agreement, the music charges will be set by Phonographic Performance Ireland Ltd (PPI). [...] When it initiated its case in 2010, the PPI said it was seeking payment of about €1 per bedroom per week or about 14 cent a night.'

I don't understand this. Most hotels do not play music in the rooms themselves. Does this apply if there is no music playing in the bedroom? Does it apply if the customer brings their own music? Are Dublin Bus to be next?
