Default legality of karaoke downloads for business

Many karaoke operators get karaoke songs off of download sites.
We are still buying cdgs.
What is legal to use for a karaoke business? We are trying to be/stay legal, but KAPPA is really hard to understand and will never clearly answer a question.
Is there a way to really know, or does it really matter, as many K.J.'s seem to think?
I'd like to be legal.
