Re: Springsteen sues local bar owner for copyright infringement
most bars you play at will have a ascap sticker in the window by the front entrance. I know alot of companies like grocery stores and malls use a satellite music service that pays the royalties for them. alot of bars have gone to those digital juke boxes which also pay the royalties.
Alot of venues don't pay the ascap fees, there are only so many "inspectors" so they can't hit up every venue so venues risk it.
