LOEL+ simplifies licensing for Irish – focused music services with a straightforward annual fee. It is a joint IMRO/MCPSI blanket licence which provides full access to all IMRO and MCPSI members’ repertoire.
If your service generates less than €7,000 a year in gross revenue, you may find our Limited Online Exploitation Music Licence (LOEL) meets your requirements. See below for details.
Licences for larger services
If your service generates more than €200,000 a year, usage will be greater than the maximum allowance under LOEL+, or if your service will be operating across multiple territories, please contact email@example.com for further information.
