    The laws/rights are all fine and good.
    However, when a band is simply playing weekends in front of 20-50 people in some beer bar… for a total payment of maybe 20.00 per member how the freek are they supposed to pay for these cover songs? ..and why is it that mechanical rights royalties have declined, when the cost of publishing is at an all time low and distribution is now virtually world wide and instant?
    Lastly… when a song is used for the purposes of teaching music in some context (be it instrument or theory) there should be no requirement to pay royalties on that music unless some (paper, video, etc..) physical version of the music lesson on that music is being sold.
    These laws have gone a long bit overboard and its time that they are reigned in, while assuring that the artist retains fair, reasonable rights and compensation.

    3 percent a song performed you don't own the rights to. That can add up pretty quickly, there are a lot of artists who have a set list that's like half covers.
    Now it kind of makes sense that ticket prices are so high, because 3 percent for each cover can add up pretty quick.

    Elvis Presley wanted to record Dolly Parton's song "I will always love you" but the contract fell through when Elvis's manager Colonel Parker insisted that in the contract Dolly would'nt be entitled to any royalties, or publishing rites. TO HER OWN SONG
