I'm pretty sure bars and restaurants and other public venues pay a yearly
fee to ASCAP that allows them to play prerecorded music for the public. There
may be occasional violators who don't do that, but my understanding is that
ASCAP is extremely vigilant abt protecting its copyrights and sends out
undercover inspectors to assure compliance (as Coke and Pepsi are rumored to do so
that their trademarks are protected).
