Totally against this bill.
who's to say actor1 deserves X amount of dollars and another deserves another amount. Its a free market.

plus, musicians make a lot more money on live shows, endorsements and their own products than they do on selling their songs. I've always argued from a marketing perspective that songs should be free to capture the biggest audience possible so they come to your shows and buy they stuff you sell.
