Nafisa Seedat asks: “l know you have been through this issue before but l am so, so angry. How can these people justify asking you (me) to buy a licence for non-music?
“This started out to make money for recording artists, which is fair in a greedy kind of way because they make music to be shared, that’s how they become popular. But now l am being told l can’t even listen to Talk Radio in my shop unless l purchase a licence for this, too!!!!
“Please make me understand !!!!!!!!!!!”
It’s just that all radio occasionally uses music. As I write this, Radio 4’s ‘Today’ programme was holding a discussion on the violin sliding down the most popular instrument scale. So there was a bit of fiddling.
