BMI Public Performance Suit

Not to be outdone by the competition (i.e., ASCAP), BMI and various publishing companies has filed suit in the Western District of New York against a Rochester nightclub for copyright infringement arising out of the defendants' allegedly unauthorized public performance of musical compositions. Does this look familiar?
