Pizza with a song?

A pizza restaurant in Malmö is being prosecuted for not paying for a performing rights licence to be able to play the radio to their customers.

They have been asked several times to pay for a licence but have repeatedly declined using the feeble excuse that they don't have a radio...... Apparently no-one from STIM has actually been there to check.

..and you have of course noticed that a radio station in any case already pays for the right to broadcast music to the public?

[Errata: Apparently it is not STIM but SAMI, and it's not a radio it is a TV, and it is actually there - but only used to show sport - and hence there is no or negligible music]
