Subject: RE: Intellectual property
I can say first hand that many places that once had " Live Music " no longer do. They would rather not have music than pay the quislings from ASCAP !!!!! They take work away from musicians who are broke to start with, and opportunities away from people who need any break they can get. Thank-you ASCAP !!!! You have ruined many peoples lives, and robbed the rest of us of the pleasure they would have givin us ! I know a whole lot of musicians, and I have never met one who has benefited from this organization, but it has cost them all money, and work ! If you are involved with ASCAP, and things go bad in your life, I hope you don't ever have the nerve to say " What did I ever do to deserve this " " CURSE YOU ALL " John M.
