Rising costs

The point of the story is not about paying the fees, it's to let the public and consumers know exactly why they have to pay so much for a drink and tickets at live music shows. I would suggest doing more research about ASCAP and BMI before you start siding with them. These organizations do not support struggling artists, they simply feed money to the music power structure (meaning producers, lawyers,and agents) before any artists actually see a dime. You'll notice that most sites dedicated to anti-BMI and ASCAP are set up by indepedent musicians trying to make a living in this perverse coporate set-up. Also, these organizations are non-profit, meaing they are expempt from local & state taxes, only taking away from the local economy, not adding anthing to it.
