Wow, interesting (however OT). I've just had a phone call from the
French author's rights management organization, saying they had
collected nearly €4000 on my behalf subsequently to my first opera
perfomances, and that all I had to do to receive the money was to
formally subscribe to their organization (thus acknowledging that this
money had been rightfully collected in the first place, ignoring the
way my work was licensed and negating nearly everything I've been
fighting for my whole life). I had to explain to them that this money
had been collected illegally and that they should return it to the
Opera House; took me a couple hours -- and in the end they were
practically accusing me of being a criminal.

(And just fyi, €4000 is just slightly above what I make in a year.)

(And, yes, I do feel kinda stupid for turning it down.)

Boy, do these spambots make up for interesting off-topicness :)
