Well, at least in the commercial audio work, you have to pay a musican
or composer for performing his/her music. I was playing dance music in
a band some years ago with a dedicated commercial approach, and we had
to list all music we played an evening for the GEMA and had pay for
being allowed to play them. But this music had another license, which
explicitly wasn't intended to promote "commons".
