Re: Compensation has already been paid
So all the employees bring their own same CDs into work and tracks are played in turn from each ?
No one is listening to a piece of music they don't own. New meaning to a stack of music.
I had a Hi Fi shop at one time and the argument that we asked the customers to bring in their own CDs held no sway. We also pointed out that without the equipment we were selling, there would be no or a very reduced ability to play CDs leading to fewer sales and perhaps they should pay us a royalty.
Those people have no sense of humour !
Most musicians get nothing from any of these 'taxes', only a few of the largest sellers, and one could argue that these are the ones that least need the money.
