I still didn't hear anyone about the current situation of licensing in the US.

There is a central organisation here in the Netherlands so I could run a legal song lyrics website. Problem is, I'll be one of the few that actually pay and won't survive easilly.

The organisation here in the Netherlands is called MusiŠopy.

I'm wondering if this will cover enough lyrics to stay out of trouble.
