No more jaw-jaw, as PRS sues SoundCloud over music streaming

CAPS LOCK

YES f**k PRS and PPL, they're lying c*nts.

They have BOTH called my office and claimed that all music reproduction must be paid for. One guy from PPL straightforwardly lied about the situation with works which are out of copyright in the UK. F**k them.

CAPS LOCK

In the end this is about taxation...

... the various moves to 'Ban This Sick Filth' will, of course fail. The gubmint will use that as an excuse to bring in a white list. To get on the white list you will be required to fill in the forms and return them (by post!) with the processing fee. The fee will be laughably small, so you can't object. Once that is established the fee will rise inexorably.
