York University . I am returning to this case, even as the appeal proceeds, because I’ve begun to think that it reveals the extent to which the Copyright Act is currently unable to serve both party’s legitimate rights and interests.

Regarding "Royalties"

This might seem like a strange question and maybe it doesn't belong here, not sure. This is regarding "royalties" I guess. When I worked in radio years ago, we had to pay a percentage of our sales to ASCAP and BMI I guess toward royalties for the talent. How is that enforced?
