We recently wrote an article explaining why restaurants, bars, retail outlets, and other public places shouldn’t play recorded or live music without having a license to do so. We apparently need to yell louder because Nickel and Rye –– a restaurant right here in our good ol’ Dallas back yard –– got sued by ASCAP for playing unlicensed music. (The case is Universal Music Corp. et al. v. MAB&G General, L.L.C. et al., Case No. 3:19-cv-02558-C, in Dallas federal court.) The restaurant closed less than two months later.
