RE: Composers should also get paid

Well under the example given below the piano guy lost HIS JOB because he
wasn't informed.  Not trying to argumentative or anything.  Just trying
to get facts straight.

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.
