ASCAP is not speaking for us musicians. This is about making money, not protecting us.

Royalty collection societies are government-licensed price-fixing cartels. FUD = self protection.

Why are the ASCAP spreading such lies. I for one have contacted them letting my views known.

"the ultimate loser will be the music consumer". Their altruism is a little insincere.

Is the truth that EFF and Creative Commons "simply" do not want to pay for the use of music?

lol, who wrote this??

These groups (EFF, Creative Commons, etc.) are actually empowering copyright holders to freely distribute media under terms of their choosing. These groups are making no claims over material that ASCAP holds rights to. Total FUD. . .

ASCAP, MPAA, RIAA is about protecting the distribution channel, not the artists, composers, etc.
