Kwik-Fit sued by PRS
The Performing Right Society is taking Kwik-Fit to court for not having a licence for staff to listen to the radio at work. PRS is claiming £200,000 damages, because music from workers personal radios could clearly be heard by colleagues and customers.
PRS insists that situation amounts to the performance of copyrighted music in public, saying the firm is guilty of infringing copyright. But Kwik-Fit has a policy banning the use of personal radios in the workplace.
