This is big news indeed. It doesn't surprise me that it's slipping under the radar. The implications of this are cutting out the middleman (ie, ASCAP/BMI) and paying artists directly!(? Am I reading this correctly?)

I for one applause this business model. Although I know ASCAP and BMI were founded on good intentions, most people that I know have not received any sort of royalties from either organization. What we HAVE seen is a systematic shutdown of available venues to play all over the United States over excessive fees. Perhaps things are changing...
