Small Business vs. ASCAP = David vs. Goliath

In 2007, the American Society of Composers, Authors & Publishers (ASCAP) sued more than 200 small businesses for "publicly performing" their catalog without authorization. Business owners like Marc Mongelluzzo of Brookside's Bar & Grill likely had no idea that hosting a Karaoke contest requires annual fees to be paid to both ASCAP and BMI. While ASCAP has every legal right to require these fees, we believe it's important for small business owners to know there's an alternative. Our newest CD of retail music, Modern Retail (#SCPOP13) features modern, edgy retail music perfect for any business environment. The best part? Using this high-quality music in your bar, store or as restaurant music requires no on-going fees. Pay only once and your usage is covered. As the sole copyright owner of all 8,000 music tracks in our production music, RoyaltyFreeMusic is proud to offer high quality background music to cost-conscious businesses.
