I have just been contacted by this society and been advised that I need to pay some Â£1800 per annum for hotel guests to view and listen to music in their rooms.
We pay for a Television Licence for the hotel.
The law states that once you have reserved a room in a hotel, it becomes your private residence,so any viewing of tv or listening to radio is deemed to be private.
It seems to me that someone at the PRS has gone a bit bonkers. I also received an email from an MP a couple of weeks ago saying that they had received a considerable amount of casework about this issue and was pursuing it further. Watch this space.
