The above that I've enhanced in bold type may subject you to arrest for violation of copyright and / also to heavy civil penalties if you do not have copyright license to perform each popular and/or theme song you play ... and by that you best have such licenses on your person. Perhaps, this ploy will only be used by local police to remove you but such will put you on record where you may still face the civil charges. There's lots of beautiful music in the public domain and the quality of your performance is what attracts the most cash. Just a thought, every so often play TAPS to honor those who cannot listen yet allowed you your opportunity. Too, some communities have ordinances that require permits for street performers. Bah humbug!
