Local and national businesses, large and small are being threatened by demands from the Performing Rights Society (PRS). They are using fear tactics which are nothing short of criminal to make you pay for a licence to have a radio in the workplace.
If you have not yet been contacted by the PRS take my advice and give them no information, just put the phone down - you will feel so much better.
If you have a licence already - send it back for a refund and switch off!
If you receive a licence you haven't requested - send it back to the PRS.
Act now! Join the increasing number of businesses concerned by this and SWITCH YOUR RADIO OFF NOW!
Having taken advice it would appear that if an employee brough a radio into work and it is not linked to a PA system you do not need a licence.
There is a national petition running which you can sign by clicking the link on the right hand side of the page (e-petition).
