Do the musicians have no shame?

Now the musicians are lobbying againsat greater media consolidation as if it is destroying independent musicians. Of course there is no reason why that should be so and the mom-and-pop radio stations are playing just as few low-key songs as the big stations. After all the musicians made no fuss about the consolidation of the record companies because that was good for buisness. What this is about is increasing their copyright fees. A big conglomerate can get much better rates for copyright use than a single station. If they really were serious about being against monopolies they’d agree to relax some of their fair use standards so that an independent person can legally compete with the big guns.
