“Under Costa Rican law, any music which is heard by customers in a business is subject to copyright recognition fees by the Asociación de Compositores y Autores Musicales de Costa Rica (ACAM). This law extends to restaurants, bars, hotels, stores, shopping centers, etc.”, writes Venture Legal on their news page.
