Could be true. It all depends on where you live. Different countries, states, cities all have laws that may require a licence or even forbid, busking. Check with your local authorities, or with other buskers in your town.

I know, here in winnipeg manitoba cannada, that in the forks we have to try out, and if we are good enough then we get a liscense to busk.

i do belive Musician buskers have their "rights" on their side.... They can just go outside and play - Freedom of speach and all that.. That dosn't work out as well for guys like us.

Magicians, and anyone who draws a nice crowd and performs a big show designed to get tips usually has to go through the proper channels if the Town your working in requires it..

If you are actually busking...working for tips, it is common that you will need a permit. It's not a license. Depending on where you live, you may also have to register yourself as a business. You're offering a service for a fee. Some cities determine this to be a business. The best thing to do is to call your local Chamber of Commerce. They can answer any questions you may have.
