"" BMI reported revenues of $673 million for the 2004 fiscal year,
an increase of nearly $43 million, 6.8% over the prior year. The
performing rights organization generated royalties of more than $573
million for its songwriters, composers and music publishers. Royalties
increased by $40 million or 7.5% from the previous year. BMI President
and CEO Frances W. Preston said both the revenues and royalty
distributions were the largest in the company's history. ""

it except for samples.

And here I thought it was the recession killing the industry. How many
people are going to buy CDs instead of food.
