I’m just going to stop playing music all together

So, if you play your boombox at the basketball court, you can be sued.

“As long as it’s [played] outside a direct circle of friends and family, it is considered a public performance,” Candilora said. “A musical composition is somebody’s property.”

If your kid plays “Kids Bop 12” on his clock-radio CD player at his lemonade stand, he can be sued.

If a school gathering has a cheerleading demonstration and pep-rally, complete with the latest music, they can be sued.

What if I belt out a few lines of “Wind Beneath My Wings” That’s a public performance. Will I have Bette Midler’s lawyer on my ass?

Well, it’d be better than Bette herself.
