Re: Composers should also get paid

It doesn't really matter for the performer, in practical terms any
live music venue is required to carry both licenses.  Otherwise they'd
have to verify that nothing played there was from the "wrong"
performance rights organization that they hadn't purchased a license
from.  The ASCAP police aren't going to come rough you up--it's the
venue they're going to get heavy with.
