I don’t feel it neccessary to pay these fees at all. I contacted BMI back in October as I was reseaching Part15 station information, to find out what, if any licensing would be required to play BMI music. They told me there was no license… other part 15ers confirmed this as I began to find message boards and such and talk to people.
BMI contacted me just in the last week and said that they now have a license for part-15 stations. I do not know why they contacted only me and none of the other people who have ever contacted them (unless those people just aren’t on this board).
I never badgered them, or said hey I really want a license… all I asked was if there was a license… to which they told me “no”.
