Hello AJ readers!

This week was a mix of interesting business news.

First, we learned about Rodeo 4, formerly known as Charley B’s, and a lawsuit involving the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP). ASCAP is suing his Rodeo 4 for copyright infringement because Lubbock’s largest nightclub did not have a permit or license to play his ASCAP member’s music, according to the lawsuit.

Jackson Wagener of ASCAP’s legal team said: “The member, who is not actively touring or selling merchandise because he is not a well-known performer, relies on his ASCAP royalties to pay bills, get his children to school, and manage day-to-day living expenses. Meanwhile, Rodeo 4 did not return a request for comment by the end of the week.
