Default Re: Springsteen sues local bar owner for copyright infringement

The "Born to Run" rocker filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against Connolly's Pub & Restaurant on Wednesday, claiming the venue's bosses charged customers a fee to hear a band perform three of Springsteen's tracks in August 2008.

I wonder if this is the crux of the biscuit. IOW, the issue is the club charging the patrons and Springsteen not liking that, not necessarily whether they were paying ASCAP or not.
