+ - SABAM wants truckers to pay for listening to radio-> 3 3

SABAM already has a system in place to extract fees from businesses for having radio's in the work area for businesses with more than 9 employees and they find that truckers' cabins are areas of work and thus infringe on their copyrights. The local politicians think this is going too far, they believe truckers need a radio for safety reasons and view a truck cabin as 'an intimate place'.

Can you come up with other places to extract music copyright remittances? Maybe you may want to pay taxes every time you take a dump as your gas may form a tune."

The perversity of nature is nowhere better demonstrated by the fact that, when exposed to the same atmosphere, bread becomes hard while crackers become soft.
