Working alone, listening to the radio...
LOL...sometimes, it's just too stupid to be true but sadly it is true...working alone, as in a job situation, and listening to the radio you still have to pay a licence, not sure if it's the same in the US or other countries.

It comes as one antique repairer in the Whitehall area of Darwen was “hounded” for £250 despite working alone in a garage at home.

Darwen small businesses warned over playing music (From Lancashire Telegraph)

Mrs Greenway, 62, kept the radio tuned to the station religiously while mucking out because of the apparent benefits.

But she has dropped the practice after being told that she must pay a £99 annual licence fee as it constitutes a "performance".
