Default Re: Springsteen sues local bar owner for copyright infringement

I always wondered how musicians collected their royalties from say radio broadcasts for starters. Does the station pay each label a penny or whatever when they play a song? What a huge job that would be to coordinate, all those records, all those artists... How is any of this proven, who played what how many times. Is that somones job? making sure every side that is played is paid for all the time? Multiply that by all the radio stations across the country and wow what a complicated system!
