Default EMI Publishing Dumps ASCAP

Interesting:

Via NPR

The music business has undergone drastic changes during the Internet era, but until recently, one thing that hadn't changed was the role of the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers, known to the industry as ASCAP. This performance rights organization has helped songwriters and music publishers get paid when their songs are played in radio broadcasts, on elevators and in clubs for nearly 100 years. But as broadcasting moves online, ASCAP's future may be uncertain......

.....The ease of online tracking is why EMI has decided to drop ASCAP for tracking digital rights — the music that gets played online — for its April Music catalog. In a statement, Roger Faxon, the CEO of EMI Music Publishing, says that the company is trying to create more efficiency. He says he wants to reduce the barriers to the development of new online services.

What do you think? Good idea or bad idea?

Good if the tiny piece o' the pie that ASCAP gets is passed along to the writer and publisher. Bad if April Music wants to grab that bit for themselves under the auspices of "increased efficiency".

To this day I wonder why I have to pay a fee for using my bank debit card when I can write a check for free.

You don't write a check for free. You just don't see the line-item charge. :)

I see this being an issue for some people. Songwriters and Artist might have to watch where their money is coming from, which is impossible.
