On Monday, 7 January, Christian musicians will begin collaborating on a project to raise money for charity. Participating artists include Michael W. Smith, Steven Curtis Chapman, Chris Tomlin, Darlene Zschech, and Matt and Beth Redman. Martin Smith, lead singer for Delirius, is organizing the five-day retreat in Perthshire, Scotland.

According to Smith (Martin, I assume), the charities will own the copyright. "That way, we can bypass the publishers, the managers, the agents, ASCAP, BMI," the Associated Press quoted Smith as saying. "One hundred percent of the money comes directly to the copyright holder." <http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/22201600/>

Help me understand. How will copyright owners make money on a song by bypassing all the people who sell it and collect money for it?
