And don't be too sure. I seem to remember reading of a store being sued
because an employee was singing songs to herself while stocking shelves.
Granted she was singing audibly.
Again, why this arbitrary distinction about what someone can and cannot do
with the property of another? Is it OK if you opne and sit in another
person's car so long as you don't start it and drive it away?
I know that. But why not? Based on the theory people seem to have that the
songs them make are their property and they should have the final say in how
they are used.

down the street not count? What about a marching band?
I invite you to consider these Copyright Questions:
I also invite you to consider if fashion designers make any money.
