martin Aug 07, 2017 12:55PM EDT

here is the scenario...

Band is playing at local bar

playing a beatles tune

does the bar pay the ascap fee?

does the band have to pay?

If the band collects a $1 then do they pay a royalty fee?

I saw the ascap list but i understand that to be if i was performing from this case i am at a location that is already paying the ascap fee.

Hi Martin,

The live venue should take care of the licensing. We take care of the licensing for the online streaming portion which is a separate thing from the live show at the venue. Filling out the form is the best way to make sure the songwriters get paid!
