Beauty salon hit with music ban

A LANCASTER beauty salon has been banned from playing recorded music after being caught playing songs by Alicia Keys and Jason Derulo without a licence.

Dani Langman, proprietor at the Bishopsgate Club at Bliss Beauty Studio in Brock Street was given the ban and handed a £1,595 legal costs bill by London’s High Court, following a hearing in the capital on December 15.

Mr Justice Vos imposed the pay up or shut up order after hearing Langman had been caught playing copyrighted music on the premises without a licence from music royalties collectors Phonographic Performance Ltd (PPL).
