GUEST,ET Licensing Bill - How will it work ? (331* d) RE: Licensing Bill - How will it work ? 04 Apr 04

And the next problem will be fees. The local government association have been seeking a local authority right to set fees from the outset. If they loose that they then seek fees that cover costs. But local authority costs are bound to far exceed the courts because in those costs they will seek to recover all enforcement fees.

My view is that making music is as near a human experience as talking, walking or being an individual. It is hardly the subject for licence. But license it is, and a so called socialist government is here acting way to the right of Ghengis Khan. Hardly surprising that the "guidance" is vague. So is the act on which it is passed.

The "guidance" is a document which is 198 pages long. Be careful if you download and print it. It will cost you a couple of print cartridges and half a ream of paper, will give you indigestion and bring on a rise in blood pressure!
