Make the Rich Pay
Here's a group that really should be shaken down by the entertainment industry. I mean, really. Hairdressers have to be the most affluent, pampered people around. In what other profession do you get to work on your feet all day, are required to be pleasant, precise and in tune with the latest styles, and make all of $30K a year? The Canadian music copyright collective, SOCAN, wants a piece of that income because hairdressers play music in their salons. Musicians should be ashamed of their royalty agents. Don't they see this is a kind of advertising for their music?
