John Cougar Mellencamp on digital music

I don't really disagree with John... the little performing artist shouldn't be paying huge fees, but if YouTube is not playing ASCAP or BMI fees for the blatant rip off of songs too many of their users posts... it's an absolute shame. I cover songs on YouTube and always give credit, and when our band covers them in concert; we're playing in bars that pay ASCAP and BMI fees. Some one get an hold on the fact that there is stealing going on... YouTube has become many person's radio, and that's just one.. .hell I hear Pandora might not stay around forever because they play by the rules and pay royalties.
