An ASCAP rate court ruling has held that Pandora (an internet radio service) pay performing rights organisations 1.85% of its annual income.   Publishers are lamenting the ruling believing songwriters and composers should be paid more for radio airplay and that the rates are governed by antiquated consent decrees that bear no resemblance in todays landscape.   The ruling does not apply to the Universal Music Publishing Group BMI repertoire as UMPG signed a direct licensing deal with Pandora last year.
