To protect the rights of content creators...
We have paid the performer to perform at our event. Why do we have to pay COSOTA?

When the performer is paid to perform at an event, such payment is an appearance fee for his service as a performing artist at the said event but not for public performance of the musical work which may have been created by another person and published by an entity different from the performing artist.

You will require a Performing Rights License from COSOTA for the public performance of the works. Performing rights are the rights to perform music in public.
