@davidclowery: STOOPID: Restaurant, Bar and Venue Lobbyists Applaud DOJ Decision That Will Limit Available Music or Require Further Licenses

I’m gonna make this very easy for everyone to understand.  These are the companies and organizations that make up the MIC-Coaltion.   As a venue or restaurant your interests in music licensing are represented by National Restaurant Association, Alcohol Beverage Licensees or National Retail Federation. They are all members of this group.

As far as we can tell this was the only group (along with Google) that was pushing the DOJ to change song licensing from the historical and internally accepted standard of fractional licensing to “100% licensing.”   Or forcing a single co-writer to license the song for everyone else.
