Sounds like extortion to me, old school protection racket.

Yes, copyright laws are a form of protection... protection against uncompensated commercial exploitation of someones creative work.  You might want to go back and read again my posts and those of Brad Weber.

The fact that it is being discussed and gets such a reaction supports that the use of the music or other media represents some value to people.  You can argue the aspects of whether that compensation goes to the people it should or the details of the related laws but I always wonder about those that seem against the basic concept that someone that creates something of value should be compensated by those who use it and especially those who profit from its use.
