SABAM wants truckers to pay for listening to radio

guruevi (827432) writes | more than 3 years ago


guruevi writes "SABAM, the Belgian RIAA wants truckers to start paying for the copyrights to listen to the radio in their cabin. SABAM already has a system in place to extract fees from businesses for having radio's in the work area for businesses with more than 9 employees and they find that truckers' cabins are areas of work and thus infringe on their copyrights. The local politicians think this is going too far, they believe truckers need a radio for safety reasons and view a truck cabin as 'an intimate place'.

Can you come up with other places to extract music copyright remittances? Maybe you may want to pay taxes every time you take a dump as your gas may form a tune."

Grab any RIAA supporter and slowly strangle them while ripping off their genitals. The sounds produced will delight the ears of all and they will be royalty free as well.

Not only that, we could CC it and post it on Newgrounds/any other open music site. Their pain is our original content. ;)
