I know how people love to fact check so before I posted this reply I called
Pipers Tavern on Falls and they said that the only time they pay a licensing
fee is if they are showing a Pay-Per-View event or something like that. They
broadcast CNN and ESPN on all of their TV's all day, every day, and they
broadcast most every sporting event that anyone at the bar would find
interesting. They also said that they never have had a problem with
advertising the event. They normally have a Super Bowl blowout or the
Carolina-Duke juggernaut advertised in local papers or along the roadside
and they said that they just have it on every tv at the bar straight from
regular cable. They said where people get in trouble is trying to sell
tickets or charge admission to events like ppv fights.
They were interested in why I was calling and asking about licensing fees so
I told them that I was wanting to make sure that my computer users group
wouldn't get in trouble for showing 'Heidi' at our Christmas party. They
said that we'd be ok...
