Thread Name: When should you be paid for performing?
Subject: RE: When should you be paid for performing?
OK, I seem to have missed this thread - just caught it now. My feeling is that is has to be down to the player or group to make that sort of descision. I am not in the professional league but even if I was, I think (in fact feel convinced) that I would like to be playing for the love of music rather than for financial rewards but I feel that those who have chosen to and managed to make a career out of it should be able to... It is a hard one - and IMO, very much related to copyright laws and there are times when I wonder whether I am consistent in my own beliefs where that issue is concerned.
