Here is the real deal: ASCAP only pays out to a select few, a pittance to a few more and then absolutely nothing to most of their catalog. I am one of the many...I have performed in countless venues...CBGB's, Hard Rock Cafe' etc etc, played on Hard, satellite and online radio worldwide, earned Six Grammy Nominations & 4 Air Platinum Record Plaques (equals 4 million plus) been a ASCAP member for 40 years and have never collected one cent. Not one. So if the PRO's did what they claim then yes, the licensing fees would and should also be fair and legitimate. But it is not! It is extortion and they are liars and thieves and they WILL sue. And oh by the way, ASCAP has never lost a suit!!! They have all your money and our money to bury you with.
