Actually, APRA will bill businesses who play the music in their premises.
Whether or not the business will take the bill seriously and pay up... that's another matter. :D

Tax payers wouldn't pay for the service, ISP users would (through increased monthy/traffic fees).

The process goes something like this:

Step 1: You (or someone using your internet connection) partakes of the Internet
Step 2: Copyright owner complains to ISP about your (alleged) IP infringement
Step 3: ISP initiates process. Maybe they investigate. Maybe not. Not defined in act
Step 4: ....
Step 5: Profit

from that it seems like a bunch of blow, for no reason. who the fuck cares if no one is going to actively police it.
