The following definition of performance - from the above site.


Any performance of copyright music, whether live or recorded, that takes place outside the home is regarded as a public performance and will usually require a licence from PRS. Licences are usually issued to the owner of the premises where the music is being performed.

I think the rather tenuous nature of the PRS claim that music shops are in any shape or form involved in a performance of copyright music is reflected in the 30% discount that PRS is so generously offering them.
