This is a question that I try to make understand to organisers of
concerts since a long time ago. The same for the cases in which it is
necessary to pay for registering pieces.
Composers must be conscious that they are professionals as any other
(even students) and that they must be considered in that hierarchy.
The organizers of concerts should be able to get the necessary
subventions to realize the events and so, their activity will be really
justified. And also, they must pay the royalties !!
That in most of cases, they don't do.
