Dave Winer, "$288 buys you what?" This really could (should?) be a lot simpler. Though the experimental ASCAP podcast-ready license is a welcome attempt to recognize and address new technological developments, the music royalty scheme could not be more confusing to the average person. It confuses me, and I'm a lawyer (albeit a blonde-ish litigator). Note the disconnect between the ASCAP FAQ for the new licenses and the actual frequently asked questions, a good cross section of which appear in the comments to Dave's post. Bret Fausett, if you have the time a more comprehensive follow-up would be super.
