    It costs a fortune for the rights to the songs.

    The fact that he says "Please stop singing", gives me the strong impression that he wants them to stop washing dishes.

    But anyway; I think the producers should let them sing.. then just not put it on TV..
    Would that work?

    Nope -- anything that is being broadcast needs to be enfringement-free.

    Does UK have different laws or something over there? Or are they just willing to throw around more money?

    I personally hate the singing on UK anyways, it makes me feel like im watching Barney.

    LOL!! You can't sing a song?

    So if I'm walking down the street singing a song, and the copyright owner hears me, he can sue?

    LOL!

    No, you can't profit it from it walking down the street. CBS is making money on the show that the singing is taking place in so the songwriter needs to be paid, too. If you are walking down the street, you aren't making money. Unless, you are a hooker, of course.

    No.

    Because people pay for the feeds. So its like, CBS is making money off someone singing an artists song.

    Oops someone got to it before me.
