I just pulled this from my files for those of you pleading ignorance.  
That is really no excuse if they catch you.  You and the station will be 
liable.

/The sound recording performance complement is defined in USC 
114(j)(13).  Statutory licensees must comply with all federal 
regulations.  SoundExchange, as the administrator of the statutory 
licensing described in sections 112 and 114, is not in a position to 
alter or deviate from these regulations.  Please visit copyright.gov to 
view the actual statutes.

If you need assistance in interpreting this, or any other statutes or 
regulations, please consult legal counsel, as SoundExchange cannot give 
legal advice.
