Thread Name: PRS at it again!!
Subject: RE: PRS at it again!!
Can't stand the thought of there being some all-bearing super power that has the rights and influence over all performance. If I play a Bert Jansch composition in my set and get £30 for playing that night then had to pay Bert for the opportunity I'd be kinda deflated. Especially as it's not even my 'real' job. There's lots of different factors in this situation that a single statement cannot contend with. If the PRS wanted to charge me for a small event they'd have to drag me kickin' and screamin'. I dunno. Has anyone here ever had real trouble with them about anything whereby it's resulted in court action?
