    This is all covered in the 'stickies'.
    short answer:
    PRO=Performing Rights Organization, such as ASCAP.
    Licenses are fees paid for the use of copyrighted materials.
    Publisher's Royalties are the % of the royalty payment that goes to the publisher of copyrighted music when recorded and distributed.
