Sandra Burt, 56, who works at A&T Food store in Clackmannanshire, was warned she could be fined for her singing by the Performing Right Society (PRS).Even the PRS figured out that this was a little over the top, and apologized. A real apology, not one of those "we're sorry if someone was offended" pseudo-apologies:
The village store where Mrs Burt works was contacted by the PRS earlier this year to warn them that a licence was needed to play a radio within earshot of customers.
When the shop owner decided to get rid of the radio as a result, Mrs Burt said she began singing as she worked.
Flowers and a proper apology. Well done, lads.
In response to the furore created by their initial hardline, the PRS contacted Mrs Burt to apologise.
In a note attached to a large bouquet of flowers they said: "We're very sorry we made a big mistake.
"We hear you have a lovely singing voice and we wish you good luck."
