The Spanish version of ASCAP(SGAE)had it's own scandal about 2 yrs ago when
the director (who had been running the show for about 20 years) was caught
with his hand in the cookie jar.  He is still awaiting his court case for
fraud.  The Society, as it is called here, has been completely restructered.
This "Society" is for composers only.  

Royalties for performing & recording artists come from another company that
seems to be run well.  Big salaries & chaffeur driven cars for the high ups,
of course........
