"Don't You Have A Licence To Play This?"

Phonographic Performance Limited want around £90/year if you play background music in a waiting room. Moreover, they seem to be keeping quiet about which phonographs they have the rights to, presumable in the hope of swindling all the doctors, dentists and opticians in the land into thinking They Own All Music Ever. But they don't, check out the Internet Archive, or Ubu Web, or via Creative Commons for yourself.
