Almost any use of music in a sound or video production playing is considered a “public performance”, so that music is subject to copyright law. Musicians, composers, and performers are always associated with licensing organizations such as ASCAP (American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers) or BMI (Broadcast Music Industries). Performances of copyrighted music without permission of one of these associations may lead to a lawsuit in Federal Court (with damages ranging from $250 to $10,000 for each song infringed!) Yikes.
