now listen to that... ZAiKS a Polish organization comitted to collecting copyrights of Polish artists, came up with a 'great' idea. they wanted barbers, and taxi drivers to PAY for PLAYING MUSIC in barber shops and cabs... can you imagine that? if it's not sick, what is it? :)
and yeah, you're right, that's not artists (generally, and if yes, they're usually oversensitive, and/or having some problems with their self-esteem or feel underrated :P) but recording companies. that's who pointed me as a 'law-breaker' :). i think Lou Reed would be cool about it... we'll see. or no ;)
