There were no such signs in Sweden as I can remember. I think I was around 20 years old the first time I heard that it was illegal to record music from the radio.
And all those names that you listed are not even familiar to me. The only Canadian singer that I know of sounds like she was Irish and her name is Loreena McKennitt. Dats it.
I know that there are performing artists in Sweden fighting against these laws. The only ones who will make money from these “releases” are the recording companies and the distributers. They’ve also argued against the high prices on music CD’s since they are so dirt cheap to manifacture. As always it without any result though.
