Thread Name: A little more news on Licensing
Subject: RE: A little more news on Licensing
I tend not to comment much (if at all) on the complexities of US party politics, as not being a resident, my understanding is such that I feel any contribution from me would be of little or no value.

Entertainment Licensing here has historically been used for raising revenue, all undertaken in the noble aim of ensuring the public's safety.

The campaign was to try and limit additional licensing in this field, to where such measures could be justified on these grounds. The new Act we now have will prevent even one non-amplified performer without this additional licence but considers these TV sporting nights, to be safe without.
