So if a royalty has to be paid to listen from the Square, why don’t we have to pay a royalty to listen on-line to WVLG??
TV is not charging $ for people to listen to the bands.....why on line???

My reply in post #4 said TV would need to purchase a license, nothing about the listener paying. In the USA, larger commercial radio stations pay 12¢ per play, college stations pay 6¢ per play. Half that money goes to the publisher, the other half goes to the songwriter (or songwriters). WVLG does pay, they also sell advertising and make a profit.
