The respect of copyrights is important and my idea here is NOT meant to diminish the responsibility of being entirely compliant, but the law sometimes takes twists and turns….
Imagine the announcer saying, “This following song is copyrighted, but I am playing it for myself personally, and since I own it, I’ve paid my dues. However, if you choose to listen you become responsible for the copyright fee and we will collect, there’s nowhere you can go to hide.”
This is a method of “passing the buck” to make the listener responsible and get the station off the hook.
