Charging $15 for a link to a website and address available to anyone who knows anything about the music industry is ridiculous. I already had that information. I was looking (and paying) for an entertainment lawyer/legal expert to give me a direct answer to my question.

You are the ones charging the money, which makes you accountable, as well.
