The article expresses the dismay of members of the Association of Charity Shops over the British Government's plan to make them pay the Phonographic Performance Ltd. (PPL) for playing music in their shops individually, which could cost each shop an average of 1,800 British pounds annually. The association said that it is already paying fees for music to the Performing Rights Society (PRS) and that the policy will affect their businesses negatively. The new policy will charge music fees per shop which will be split between PPL and PRS.
