Re: Radio in the workplace



In a message dated 97-07-04 16:24:55 EDT, you write:

<< (1) The re-broadcast of a radio transmission on
     commercial property is already illegal in itself.   
     It is considered "theft of service". >>

This is interesting, but it raises a couple of
questions:

  (1)  Couldn't a rebroadcaster make the
        situation legal by purchasing an ASCAP
        license?

  (2)  Wouldn't a government agency be exempt
        from the rebroadcasting prohibition?  As I
        understand it, the theory supporting the
        requirement of licenses is that rebroadcasters
        are using the music to support entrepreneurial
        endeavors.  It seems that this would not apply
        to the government.
