Thread Name: More buffoonery from Performing Rights Society
Subject: RE: Review: More buffoonery from Performing Rights S
I can see SOCAN doing that because their raison d'etre is the collection of performing rights fees, and once a song or work is listed with them they have that obligation. But were I he, I'd give 'em a call, cite the work, date, etc., and ask where the hell HIS payment is. They have gone to once-yearly remuneration for authors, writers, etc. (I think).

However, telling a lady she can't breakout with a rousing chorus of "Wild Thing" is just a bit OTT, no?
