Default Re: Charges for workshop radios

What happens when you go to a site and someone has one of those work radios blasting out and you can't not hear it. Is someone paying a radio licence or what's the deal? Do we also have to take the radios out the vehicles in case 4 employees are traveling to a job and the radio is on in the vehicle?

this came in maybe 15 years ago - the ability to pursue folk ..... Public Broadcast License ....
tell 'em to F off ...
used to have a few radios about the shop and if anyone came in questioning, it was ...
that's his, he's listening to and that's t'other guy's, who's listening to his ....
and you're not allowed to listen to any of 'em ...... goodbye, get out of my property.
Never paid for any bloody license .... **** 'em

would like to see them try and take my radio off me at work it is how they judge when to come in the workshop if it is really heavy metal and thrash metal they stay away if it is softer metal they come in lol. i normally i own share in the radio station i listen to (internet based rock radio station) and also pay a membership fee to listen to them so would like to know how they would get round that one lol

I was curious to other people's thoughts on this and if they have paid up in the past. It seems they have all been told to naff off.
Also what if the boss won't pay but the folk in the workshop want to pay then can they buy a radio license between them?

Best thing that could happen is they were got rid of. Why these people think everyone else should be subjected to their choice of music I don't know. Particuarly bad in residential areas where all the houses round about get blasted as well, just gives everyone a bad name.

as I understand it the license is related to a premises, so would guess so

Or if you're something like a mobile disco, then they would have a license specific to them and their business...at various premises.

The Performing Rights licensing has always existed, just that at some point many years ago it was made easier to pursue transgressors .... most pubs have it over their doors, together with their license to sell beers and spirits.
