Those are the clowns that got all upset over me mixing Vivaldi's 'Spring' into a video of wildflowers and other spring like things. I would think he's been dead long enough to not really care about royalty checks!
Publicly playing songs? What about being at the lake and cranking some tunes? What about driving around with your stereo up? Could BMI come looking to sue you for that? Will they come after the makers of amplifiers and speakers for aiding and abetting illegal public performances of music? lol!
Being able to post anonymously is important to me because only 2 other people in the US share my surname, it's a rare hard core Polish one. Though I use it on Facebook, in other forums I think I should be able not to use it to avoid harassment for my social/political views.
Mexico is much more of a free society than the US. Where I received this nasty notice after trying to share a dumb but funny video clip of a kitten terrorizing a pit bull.

(Sailors and mules would blush at the invective!)
If they figure out how to make time travel work, better hope the music industry does not get a hold of it. Knowing them, they would probably kill the parents of all the people who were instrumental (no pun) in developing computer and ftp technology before they were born. lol?
Around the DFW area cops are being fitted with cell phone sized cameras that can be mounted on the front of their uniforms. But, I suppose, a cop might delete the file if something he does not like happens.
Anyway, with all the cell phone cameras around, the cops will be under ever increasing scrutiny whether they like it or not.
Just press that upload to Facebook or Youtube button and there it goes!
