i like this very much. i'd like to cover it in my book on copyleft in
music - which is fast becoming a book on CC, as i'm now involved with
porting the CC licenses to comply with European law.
i'm presently writing an article for O'Reillys openp2p.com on
'compulsories' and how such a system must be very carefully vetted if we
are not to wind up being manipulated by the RIAA et al. such a strong
system as the one you propose - and of course in cooperation with Open
Studios - would offer a great alternative. we need an impartial
collection agency, one which cannot be bought because it is taking an 8%
cut from the RIAA as the MCPS is doing in the UK. i'm not sure how the
ASCAP / BMI system works in that respect. blanket fees which are
administered by an impartial, unconnected agency are the only way to do
this - but how does one ensure that?
we need an organisation which has power on the scale of the RIAA. the
EFF and of course CC are behind compulsory license systems - but if we
all get together in the way that you suggest, we might just be able to
beat them at their own game ;-).
all the best
