Change the music licensing law of 2003

Comment 12th July 2010

This law is killing live music and closing down all the small venues to the benefit of large corporate chains who can easily afford the licence. It should either be completely repealed or changed so that you only need a licience to play music above a certain decibel level for any sustained period, if this was set at a sesible level it would allow for some control of noise when a venue started to regulaly annoy its neighbours but it would mean that most events could take place without the need to buy a licence. Decibel meters can be obtained cheaply and a venue operating without a licence would have a perfect excuse to turn down the volume of any unruly performers.

Why does this matter?

Small venues that are the lifeblood of all music need support, not taxing with ridiulous unnecessary laws.
