At least there's only the one of them. Down here we have ASCAP and BMI competing to see who can be the biggest nuisance.

I wouldn't mind if they didn't demand royalties for live play in clubs, etc., then base the payout entirely on radio play - and then only on the stations they monitor. So the folky songwriters who don't get pop station radio play get squat.
