Sorry if this has already been posted but couldn't find it on search.
This is from the creator

More details from petition creator

Under the Licensing Act, a performance by one musician in a bar, restaurant, school or hospital not licensed for live music could lead to a criminal prosecution of those organising the event. Even a piano may count as a licensable 'entertainment facility'. By contrast, amplified big screen broadcast entertainment is exempt. The government says the Act is necessary to control noise nuisance, crime, disorder and public safety, even though other laws already deal with those risks. Musicians warned the Act would harm small events. About 50% of bars and 75% of restaurants have no live music permission. Obtaining permission for the mildest live music remains costly and time-consuming. In May, the Culture, Media and Sport Committee recommended exemptions for venues up to 200 capacity and for unamplified performance by one or two musicians. The government said no. But those exemptions would restore some fairness in the regulation of live music and encourage grassroots venues.

I presume that this is in England.

Many local authorities in the U. S. states and provinces in Canada require licensing for live entertainment, whether one or many performers. Canada has a hodpodge of local bylaws on amplified music, music in establishments with liquor licenses, size of establishment, etc.
