Thread Name: What is Muzak?
Subject: RE: What is Muzak?
There is another wrinkle to Muzak or more properly not using Muzak locally. If you don't subscribe to the local Muzak service and chose to play your own records, tapes, or CDs, some Muzak Music Gestapo stop by and ask to see your license to play this music.

A local friend said something rude when blackmailed this was as he was playing Chinese music - its an Oriental restaurant, and doubted that subscribing to their service would either get him Oriental music OR pay royalties to the musicians in Taiwan or the mainland.
