Musician question

So, what do the musicians and songwriters (and, I guess, anyone else who is interested) out there think of this?

(Summary: Local music club/artist's collective is boycotting ASCAP and BMI and are requiring bands who play there to perform only original music or other music they have a right to play for free.)

My own opinion, which is worth not very much because I am not all that well-informed on the issue, is that it's abstractly a good idea, but that it makes it difficult for a band like mine (which usually plays a lot of covers) to play there.
