Car repair joint sued for copyright infringement


Ugh. I give up. This isn’t good for my stress. I can’t keep reading these articles. It’s too draining. I feel like Lewis Black back when he was still relevant.

Anyway, the Performing Rights Society has brought a suit against Scotland’s "Kwik-Fit" chain of car repair shops because "Kwik-Fit mechanics routinely use personal radios while working at service centres across the UK and that music, protected by copyright, could be heard by colleagues and customers."

Come on, man. I can understand a lawsuit if you were to walk into an Abercrombie and Fitch looking for some sweet carpenter jeans and O-Town’s latest hit was blaring over the in-store music system without being licensed first because very loud music is A&F’s hook, bro. But let car mechanics listen to some Styx without hassling them.
