First, the copyright owners of most music are the big labels, EMI, Warner, CBS/Sony, etc. The "artist" is on a work made for hire contract and in cases of top artists such as Madonna are well compensated. This should be done more like the songwriter's do it with a license negociated by a third party such as Harry Fox and an option not to ask for a free or to grant "freebees" and this would stimulate "non-major lable" artists, such as indy lables and home grown pressings who opt out of the license process. This "tax" can be turned into something that provides "alternative" music offerings and takes control out of the "Major Lables."
