Mark Ross Busking in the U.S. - legal issue (9) RE: Busking in the U.S. - legal issue 16 Jul 15


My old friend , and picking partner Robb Goldstein took it to court. Here is a link to the Federal District Court Ruling;



Goldstein vs. Nantucket

"....Because three of the licensing criteria--financial responsibility of the applicant, effect on neighboring properties, and the opinion of town merchants--are neither narrow, objective not definite standards, and because those criteria exceed in their scope constitutionally permissible grounds for regulating free expression, the bylaw does not pass constitutional muster. As applied to the plaintiff, whose contemplated activity enjoys First Amendment protection it is unconstitutional."
