Re: <nettime> copyright wanking


Benjamin,

What you describe already operates for broadcast and public performance. 
There's a number of national agencies that perform this function ... the
Performing Right Society (its called something like that) being one of
them. 

However the key ingrediant which you fail to elucidate is what revenue
exactly such an online society would distribute. For radio and TV its a
small levy on the advertising revenues. Venues pay an annual fee. You will
have to locate a secure revenue source that's going to pay the artist if
you want to institute such a scheme -- then tell the music companies 'cos
a lot of them, Napster included, are still struggling to find out what
revenue stream *they're* going to use.
