Plus Kevo would have kicked my ass.
What's better for the artist? Paying 1-2 dollars a song for the small portion of an album instead of the 20-25 for the CD or pirating and allowing 0 revenue to the artist? Bars pay a few hundred, I believe. That's why I have always wondered how they incorporate it into the buyrate numbers. I do believe that the UFC charges based on capacity of the bar or restaurant.
