Dear Nicoḷ,

I will try to answer to your interesting question, giving just my 
personal opinion on this topic.

I think that if the DJ acquires the consent to use the CC songs with a 
NC (no commercial) license, the fact that he/her is paid for the gigs 
it has to be intended as an indirect commercial use of the work.

> Should he pay the rights?
To pay the rights the DJ should agree the relative fee with the author 
or who had the rights to release the songs on CC license.

> who collects them?how?

If it is a private negotiation, it's the author/composer or who had the 
right to license the songs under CC license which collect his right 
At the moment no collecting organizations are entitled to collect CC 

> And what happens if the DJ would not play live but stream a playlist 
> (and again gets paid for it)?
I think there is not differences between play live or stream a playlist 
if the DJ ge paid in both cases, there is an indirect commercial use of 
the work.

It also my opinion that nowadays the DJs cover a big role to promote 
music, so if I were an author/composer which decide to release my songs 
under CC license I will be happy to negotiate with a DJ in these 
circunstances. However I can also understand that for a DJ to negotiate 
with each author/composer will not an easy thing to do.
