Mechanical Rights Organization

Another type of CMO and pay source, these organizations or entities are responsible for the administration of mechanical licenses and, depending on the MRO, the collection and payout of mechanical royalties to publishers. Oftentimes, if a territory or country does not have a single CMO responsible for both performance and mechanical royalty collections, they split these responsibilities between a PRO and an MRO.
