I know that according to the regulations that ASCAP and BMI fees are due in the US based on number of speakers, distance of speakers from base unit; etc. if radio is piped to more then a single room for example then ASCAP and BMI can collect fees. These are "performance fees"

Playing of CD's likewise. The fees already payed on the CD's are "mechanical copyright" which is a whole different ballgame.
