GUEST,Wesley S Royalities - and 'permission to play' (14) Royalities - and 'permission to play' 03 Jan 11

I have two semi-related questions:

1 - Doesn't the writer of a song get paid a royality whenever their song is performed in public? Specifically - when a collage marching band plays a rock and roll song on TV during a bowl game - won't the writer of that song end up with some small amount of money in their pocket?

2 - When a radio talk show uses a song on a regular basis to intro their show I would expect the author of the song to receive a royality. But can't the writer stop the usage of their song if they object to the content of the radio show? And if the song is still being used after a number of years can we assume that the writer of the song knows about the arrangment and approves of it's usage?
