Subject: RE: Only in Canada eh? Pity!
If that is the law, I would assume that every pub, restaurant and store in Canada, if it has a sound system, must pay royalties to SOCAN for playing CD's and tapes.(and the U.S for that matter) Jeez they must be raking in the dough!

I assume that businesses wouldn't have to pay SOCAN and others for playing radio stations over their sound systems, as the royalties have already been paid by the radio stations or is SOCAN collecting twice in this circumstance?

Gee, maybe I should report my Dentist to SOCAN, his taste in radio stations is lousy, I might be able to force him to turn it off.
