Well, I think a petition is a _GREAT_ idea. i've been assembling an internet radio station, and the licensing is psychotic. Under a general BMI agreement, I'm _MORE_OR_LESS covered, but i need to worry about Duplication rights. I am after all making COPIES of these works to distribute. Ach, it's a nightmare.
The best bet if folks wanted to actually somehow purchase the rights would
be to get a fund together and hire an entertainment lawyer to do the
negotiations, this would require incorporation of a business to buy them,
etc. It could be done, but we'd need a reliable person to head this, and
organize everyone, not
too easy. Received on Wed Nov 19 16:50:23 1997
