Default Re: Springsteen sues local bar owner for copyright infringement

Many (although not all) clubs/bars pay an annual licensing fee to ASCAP to cover themselves from such liability.

It's not exactly a new thing.

I remember when my band was on the verge of getting signed 12-14 years ago, (which never fully went through) we all went down to ASCAP to get the paper work rolling to cover ourselves, and ASCAP gave us a list of clubs in the immediate area who had valid ASCAP licenses.
