Slovakia: SOZA Strikes Again

One year after having been defeated by public opinion, the Slovak Performing and Mechanical Rights Society (SOZA), which was asking fees for embedded videos on web pages, strikes again. Now SOZA wants fees for St. Nicholaus and Mother's Day performances, during which children recite nursery rhymes and sing folk songs [sk]. In response, people are organizing [sk] daily singing protests [sk] in front of the SOZA office. The caption to this image reads [sk]: “SOZA. We know what you're singing in the shower.”
