Submission + - Music industry demanding money from coffee shops (floridatoday.com)

realjd writes: The music industry has started demanding "protection money" from coffee shops with live music. One was even fined for having the TV on while the Monday Night Football theme played. And the owners pay up to one licensing company, all of the others start harassing them demanding payment too. What's a small business to do? It sounds like they don't even check whether any copyright violations occurred, they're just sending bills to any business that may or may not have live music.
