BMI Wants Bar and Resturant Owners To Pay Like They Weigh!!

 BMI,  the famous music licensing company -- has filed lawsuits against 12 bars and restaurants around the world, claiming the establishments has been playing their songs without paying a licensing fee. Here's the thing.  For every BMI song that gets played on a bar jukebox or by a DJ without the proper fee being paid, BMI is entitled to $150,000 in damages.  So "Love Child" could literally put a bar out of  business.

Some sources are stating, that the way BMI chose the business, they were to sue, was in fact random.  Some of the targets are The Fox Hole in West Jordan, Utah, Mojo Main in Newark, Delaware, Whiskey River Ranch, in Springfield, Oregon, Whiskey Bones Roadhouse in Rochester, Minnesota, Kildare's Irish Pub in Chapel Hill, North Carolina and Pig 'N' Whistle in NYC.

I guess you could say that the message BMI is trying to get out there is.. Ain't shid free! Pay like you would weigh, Restaurant and Bar owners!!
