Some interesting views here from the license of the ironically named, Artful Dodger!

I have bought the music legally, the artist has been paid for the work, I don't charge customers to listen to it, if anything it is giving a showcase for the latest music that my customers can then go out and buy for themselves'

This week we have seen the contempt with which those at the PPL treat the licensees with a huge legally enforceable fine for late payment.

PPL, the music royalties collection firm, has come under fire for alleged heavy-handed tactics in collecting late payment fees.

The company's approach has been thrown into the spotlight after a licensee was fined half the total of her bill for paying just over two weeks late – and told she could face jail if she challenged the fine.

The 50 per cent surcharge has been in place since last February, but the case serves as a major warning to other licensees who are late with their PPL fee payment.
