It's not as straight forward as it sounds…

We've even got the same rules in Australia, but the licenses are much cheaper. It only concerns businesses who play radio or CDs loudly where a lot of customers can hear it, maybe even TV too I think. The idea is that they're broadcasting the radio or CDs etc to attract and entertain custom. People who hold public events like fairs and things face the same trouble.

-Not stuff like private parties though and it has nothing to do with private people in their homes or even people in their workplaces as long as it's not on loudly where visiting customers and clients can hear it. But builders on a building site can play it loud without worry for example, because even though passers by can hear it, they can't be construed as doing it to attract or entertain customers or clients. -(That's how it is in Australia as I understand it)

I disagree with it too, but ever since music became a serious industry back at the start of the 20thC with the advent of commercial recording, people have been trying to find ways of milking money from it, and all the while genuine live music has been slowly strangled by it… But that's a subject for another time. :)

That's a load of bull.

I don't really think that should be considered copyright infringement… I mean, it's not like he's making money off of the radio or anything, or making CD's to give to all his friends.

Meh, how desperate and stupid. Can't the music industry just roll over and die already? Theyre not needed anymore.

I see this as an opportunity. Since this article concerns England, I am going to use this to my advantage. I am sick and tired of hearing other's blaring music played on their mobile phones in buses.

Then again, I may just be looking at an antique button on a tattered jacket.
