Interesting idea, I don't see why there has to be a fee, I'm sure it could be paid by a voluntary payment from software manufacturers if it makes more people by their products, maybe also a percentage from damages collected due to the initiative.

all you need to do to police it is have the joining contract state that a representative may do a random check of a studios DAW's for pirated software at any time (within reason). If you have no pirated software there is nothing to worry about, if you do have pirated software you wouldn't sign something that allows a representative of the companies you are pirating from have access to your DAW
