Explanation: Schutzgebühr is translated by dictionaries as nominal or token fee. In a normal context, however, the English term would only be fee or, sometimes, price. Although in this context it certainly seems to be near to a licence fee as suggested elsewher, I would stick close to the German and simply call it a fee.
