[LINK] music industry goes after public performance

I can buy a perpetual public exhibition license for a CD of non-APRA/PPCA works at Magnatune
for US$300. PPCA run the risk of pricing their members out of the market, especially if a
music retailer like Magnatune offers a public exhibition license of entire catalogue at an
annual rate.

The usual trick of using copyright licenses to impose other terms continues. APRA demand a
large amount of retail window space for display of their license 'sticker' (really, an ad
for APRA).
