    if you are making money off it be ready to either get a lawsuit or pay rolyalties to all the artists whose song you use in your mixtape

    unless its 100% of your own production then you can do whatever you want with it
    Setup:

    Traktor Pro 2 / S2 MK2 / X1 MK2 / Audio6 / Pioneer HDJ2000 / Westone UM3X / rMBP 13 inch 2014 (2.8 GHz) / Focal Alpha 50

    ^this, it's just music piracy and not the "harmless" one since you are making profit out of someone else's work.

    You need to register and pay the proper organization in your country.

    No. Leaving legal implications aside for a minute, hardly anyone wants to buy mixes, plus you lose your ability to use freely available mixes as a marketing tool.

    But when you get paid for playing the same works live it's ok? I mean, I see what you're getting at, I'm just a bit confused about the laws around it all.

    Yep, the venue (in most situations) should hold the performing rights license.

    Exactly correct. Live performance is different than selling recorded media. Every venue is SUPPOSED to have a license. There are cases when music is only licensed for a period of time so you may see a commercial using a certain song but its only allowed to air for a certain amount of time. Also with live events like UFC, WWE, TNA...they only licensed the music for the live event, but buy that event on DVD/bluray and the music can be different. Even in some movies the music on the DVD/bluray release is different than the theatrical release. Also why some songs aren't on the official soundtrack, they just don't want to pay royalties for it.

    So legally, its not a wise move to try and sell your mixes, and since there is so much free stuff out there, no one is going to pay for it anyway.

    Most people have a difficult enough time getting people to listen to their mix's for free, let alone pay for them.
