I've always paid my licensing fees scrupulously, and two days ago I got an email from ASCAP saying they are blowing off StreamLicensing and I have to start paying them. I checked with the new management at StreamLicensing, who said to ignore ASCAP, it's just a negotiation over fees. Then StreamLicensing hit up my credit card for its monthly fee. Any advice?

Above is my real question, but I do have some rhetorical ones:
1. How much of these fees actually go to the musicians in my playlist (most who live in foreign countries)?
2. When will Top 40 AM and FM stations, with 1,000x my TLH, running constant McDonald's commercials, start paying licensing fees (or is the idea that small webcasters should fund their operations indefinitely)?

There have been hundreds of posts about this already. You should first read what has already been posted:

and

As far as how much goes to the artists, do you really think ASCAP, BMI, and others will actually divulge this information ? I doubt it, as the artists are always complaining about not getting what they deserve.
