Baffling broadcasting

Last spring hoteliers were told that if they provided televisions in their hotel rooms they were considered to be communicating to the public which meant that they were required to pay the appropriate fees. This ruling also applied to other equipment and recordings in physical or digital form which could be played or heard. This decision contrasted with another relating to dentists in which the court concluded that there was no communication to the public as patients in a dental surgery did not constitute general public but a group of limited number, who only heard the recordings by chance.
