Re: Composers should also get paid

I don't believe that's the way it works in the States.  Radio stations
maintain playlists which are used to calculate airplay royalties, but
live performances are covered by the general PRO license from
BMI/ASCAP.  And the payment from that is the super-secret formula
which translates to "Famous people with radio airplay get paid,
everyone else is screwed".
