And this in turn leads to new audience targets, which also draw attention to the original. Furthermore, notes can be a very good way to boost the bonuses of collecting societies (GEMA, ASCAP etc) for live performances. In particular, cover musicians and solo entertainers are on the road regularly with current material and provide with compulsory public performances for the composer's income.
