In Germany the cities have different laws for music in the streets. On
television I saw that in Munich they each day, early in the morning need
to go to an audition at a department. If an officer likes the music and
there are not to much other musicians that are already allowed to play
in the street, it's possible to get a license. I don't remember if the
license is gratis, IIRC the musicians need to pay for it. When making
music they have to display the license clearly visible.
I don't know the law for my hometown, but I've never seen a musician
display a license clearly visible.

I can understand that there are laws for music in the streets. I hope
they would expand those laws regarding to people listening to 4 to the
flour in cars. If I'm listening to music in my flat and such a car
passes by, I can't hear the music I'm listening too, at this moment, I
only can hear the car's music. This isn't an ironically overstatement,
this really happens. They've got PA systems in their cars and they make
contests who has got the loudest car HiFi.

And really, I won't be forced to listen to El Cóndor Pasa all the day,
when there are three different Bands from Peru, each playing this song
most of the times, in one and the same street.
