Hi Butch! I'm positive you've answered this question before, but it has come up in another thread. I'm sure that any band can play any song by any songwriter in concert and not have to pay a fee of some sort to the songwriter. Is that true?

It's when that concert is commercially released on an album, then royalties must be paid to the songwriter...could you please shed some light on this issue? Thanks!

There are services, BMI and ASCAP being the two biggest, that collect payments from concert venues, clubs, juke box owners, radio staions and anyone else that uses music to make money. These companies calculate how popular a song is and divide the payments they receive between the writers songs that are being played based on the number of times they are being played (Todays number one song will receive a far bigger payment than Jagger/Richards for "Satisfaction" for example). The songwriter is the recipient of these payments.

Lennon/McCartney reportedly brought in about $70,000 a yr from Muzak royalties alone during the heyday of that concept. The big two now want publishing royalities on used Cds(sorry , I bought my replacement of WLD that way ). How about the guy that sold the publishing rights of louie louie for $40,000 - ouch... If you have just a radio in your public establishmen, the big two come for their share based on revenues and or Hours of operation. The real money appears to be in publishing rights. I'm currious how BMI or Ascap would know if a group slipped in cover song live? but it's all based on some magic formula I've been told.
