the argument is that by buying the music you have bought a licence to play the music for you own enjoyment. when that music is played in a public setting it then becomes a performance which requires an another licence for that performance to be legal. this is all backed up by law (i don’t agree with this at all by the way – there is no way it is a performance).

the money from the prs licence theoretically goes to the songwriters of the music “performed”. i might suggest to you that when you do apply for the licence you ask how the money is going to go to the songwriters of the songs you play if the prs don’t know which songs you’re playing. you might also point out that given that you play a lot of old/independent music that you are unconvinced that your money is going to the people that it should be going to and you suspect that this tax you are forced to pay is for the most part going to top up the coffers of mainstream musicians and songwriters.

but that just my opinion.
