TAXI # S200817BN British Singers Only

Post by Robertj64 » Wed Jul 29, 2020 6:24 am

This is the second listing I have seen where the library has asked for British singers only. I thought the music was the most important thing in the placement rather than where a person is born/from. I get that they want a British sound but a lot of British groups don't sing with their accent. I have a Beatles-style song that I wrote and produced which got forwarded but I cannot submit to the listing based on my birthright. Is this another form of discrimination? Will candidates need to present a passport for verification? I apologize if I am too forward but I was a bit taken aback by this.

My personal opinion is that you do not have to be British to understand the British invasion. Maybe I can stretch it and say I am from Canada which is part of the British Commonwealth. LOL.

Maybe it is worth to do work-for-hire with a British singer?

Here some thoughts re non-Americans members:
- Some References (sometimes all) not available in my country.
- TAXI TV so late at night, I cannot listen and get Chirardelli's plugins.

Point being - it is not on purpose, it just is what it is.

Thanks Tom,

I am also a non-American member so I can appreciate your response. I am very sorry that you are not privy to listings not available in your country. Can you give some examples? The taxi television is unfortunate and is a result of time differences though. There was no intent to discriminate against you that I am aware of as whatever time picked, someone always would lose out around the world. Being on the east coast, I get the program around 7pm and for you it is after midnight. I am sorry for this too.

I suspect this particular "British Only" listing violates the "US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission". It is under the clause of "National Origin Discrimination". The library may be outside the US, but the listing is within and so I think that this may fall under that. Someone can correct me if I am wrong.

It has happened before, but for instance, at the moment, the YouTube videos for listing TAXI # S200804DH are not available to me. It's okay, as I said, I don't think issues like this can always be avoided.
