I don't think so. There are no Record Labels involved in what I mean.
The GEMA & the SUISA are just national instances organizing the compensation of
the copyrights.
As I said: normaly this applies to radios and maybe libraries. They pay a fixed
sum and the GEMA spreads it to whom it belongs (the ones that have been played
on the radio).

yeah, but this is what I pay...the artists will get much less, since the
allofmp3.com wants to earn money too.
