ASCAP Wants Royalties For Ringtones

Hey this is great! Musicians getting paid more money! Oh wait, it seems that ASCAP is up to their hair-brained schemes again (remember when they went after the Girl Scouts???), and going after money they aren’t actually entitled to (again). So what do you get for your ASCAP membership these days? An organization devoting it’s resources to stupid lawsuits instead of finding more ways for you to make money. Good job guys! More at EFF.
