"We're gonna have to ask you to put your hands behind your head and ask you to step away from the mattress" said the law enforcement officer (POLITICALLY CORRECT FTW).

or the Canadian version

"Um, excuse me there sir/madam, but if you could please step away from that there mattress eh, it would be greatly appreciated."

EN FRANÇAIS

"euh, excusez-moi il ya monsieur / madame, mais si vous pouviez s'il vous plaît pas du matelas qu'il ya hein, il serait grandement apprécié."

Seriously Canada? (although I know they would love to do this in the states also)

All gatherings with music now require fees to be paid for copyrights.

"At events with fewer than one hundred people, the fees start at $9.25 per day.

For couples planning a wedding, a reception of 400 guests will cost them $27.76. If dancing is involved, that fee doubles to $55.52."

Read more: http://www.ctv.ca/CTVNews/Canada/201...#ixzz1wlbrBBDI

The most WTF part of the article is that the fee is retroactive so I guess people should expect a bill soon.

Copyright laws and regulations are completely out of control.

Yes, because everyone knows musicians, artists, authors and anyone who makes things don't want to earn any kind of income...

LOL, yeah, because most of the revenue these organizations collect actually go to the artists. LOL

And that still pays them more than people who just feel like getting everything free that someone worked to do. You know how many times my boyfriend, who is a musician, has gotten completely ripped off at a concert that refused to even pay the damn performers?

I don't see the problem anyway. If you're holding a party for 400 people $56 (about £35-40?) should be nothing.

I'm more curious as to why dancing doubles the cost.

Maybe because they are seen as copying someones dance moves?

Maybe it's because dancing needs more space?

Do you still have to pay double if someone is just tapping their feet?
