You’re actually making the original poster’s point. The royalty pool is divided by the the number of plays as a percentage of all plays. Therefore 24x7 players (or even 12x6 players) grossly sway the royalty payments toward the artists being played in their establishments. Which typically are not indie bands. And business establishments are officially prohibited from using their services for $10 a month anyway…that makes it even MORE wrong.
