JERRY RUN SUMMER THEATER
Thanks to Frederic George for photo    

Welcome to the Jerry Run Page

Closing time?
As it looks now, this is propably the last season for the theater, at least as it
operates now. My problem is with licensing the copyrighted music we play.

To get a license to play BMI music you agree to pay them a % of your profits (.9%).
OK, that sounds fair to me. But wait, we have a "minimum fee". You must pay $290 for
your license. Oh, and we want that "up-front". I'm happy to pay my fair-share to
support "intellectual-property", but BMI's "minimum-fee" bills me as if I'm bringing
in more than $30,000 ??

BMI boasts, they bring in 1 1/2 Billion a year. Do they really have to pinch me
for far more than my fair share? To BMI it's same-as-nothing. To me its $290 more,
out of my own pocket, to keep the theater afloat. BMI should be promoting MUSIC,
but prefer to promote MONEY. I don't think a small theater out in the
middle-of-know-where concerns BMI (or, a hundred small theaters for that matter).

My theater has NEVER made a profit. That doesn't bother me much. I enjoy the music
and so do others. I don't mind spending my money on the theater. But, I'm opposed to
squandering money on a BMI license that expects me to pay a higher rate than others, for
the SAME thing??

Rest assured, we'll try to continue some form of entertainment at the theater.
I have an ASCAP license (affordable). Whatever we do, I doubt, it involves BMI.
