Actually, are there any laws pertaining to live web casts of small venue shows.

http://trowbridgepl...2MEM/royalties.html first paragraph gives the most common organizations [FlyingToaster, Jul 04 2010]

       For original material, the rights holder is the one to talk to (ie: the band); for covers (eg: the band sings "Yesterday" by the Beatles) there's several organizations which collect royalties from venues and distribute them to the rights-holders.   

       They'd be the ones to talk to, and yes they handle royalty distribution for webcasts as well.
