That doesn't make any kinda sense to me. I've been in many bars/restaurants, here and in other countries, that have television or radios playing. Where's the copyright infringement in that?

Second: MUST, PRS in the UK, SABAM in Belgium - they are all the same - protecting copyright / income on artist's music / video. They do their job.
Now, I doubt the sum of 250.000 per month. There must be a rationale calculation behind this which is unclear and looks much too big (They ain't Luxy )
Last but not least - Why the hell would Mr. Burger prefer closing their doors vs. removing all audio/video equipment?
There might be another "real" story hidden behind pointing to MUST for this closure me think.
Sorry for your loss in regards to the food
It was just a reference to how they operate. None of the artists get any of the "protection money"; it all goes to MUST's pockets. I suppose you could say that that is "doing their job", but it's laughable to think that musicians, especially little-known ones, benefit in any way from their actions. MUST's lawsuits have been challenged before in courts and they've always won.
