Royalties should be paid to artists, for recognition of their performance. Their performance is how they make a living in and out the studio if they are lucky to have both! Better still, if they write or co write the song for song writing royalties too. Just as you quench your thirst with a pint of beer or glass of wine, somebody has paid for it. The same should apply for songs on the radio etc. There is far too much copying of others intelectual property rights without the correct level of respect for those involved with its production. It's the right thing to do, and keeps the industry ticking over. In the UK, our PPL pays performance royalties to UK artists, if the track is recorded here. As soon as the US starts doing it, there will more than likely be payments to American artists from UK airplay of American recordings.  It is the right thing to do, and respectful.
