ASCAP on Rye - Where's the Mustard?

...another cookie-cutter copyright infringement case filed against "a place of business for public entertainment, accommodation, amusement and refreshment" arising out of the defendants alleged public performance of copyrighted works without an ASCAP license.

Really, the only two things to observe (1) once again, a Bon Jovi work is at issue; and (2) it appears that this is another juke-box situation, this time in Missouri.
