`Dudelstopp´ is the german version of `pipe down´ using satire for propaganda.

This is the `Dudelstop´-Idea:
The VICTIMS of unintended listening get paid by the performance rights organisations for the music and not as now the producers.

Original `doctor´-script: (performed by Judith Bareiss)

"Actually I became a doctor because I wanted to help people. While my studies I found out that the idea of helping also was a common motive for the other students. Besides wednesday as the day off. That altruistic attitude can´t be absolutely deleted not even by all those healthcare reforms. And that´s why I often get such a bad feeling when people come into my clinic with common flu, with diarrhea or skin rash - and then they get some additional forced treatment by dull music from radio gaga in the waiting room. Some business officials actually established in the 90s that society has to satisfy the addiction of the deplorable noise junkies with their silencephobia as well as e.g. the need of male singles about fourty for an unmolested annual Thailand-holiday.

I´m sure that the intended readjustments are going to produce positive effects for health. With a fair compensation the output of noise products would become considerably more expensive for the entertainment industry. So that this trade branch certainly would think twice how many times it wants to please the population with its products. In this case I expect a definite reduction of pressure. But even if that is going to happen - the big stars as a start would supposedly survive: Such strong Anglo-Saxon types as Madonna or Phil Collins supposably would maintain firstly. However - one could hope that the local versions as Catterfield or Sido would be repeled or at least be limited to their natural environment: shady backyards and slums. Which of course also wouldn´t be acceptable."

satire from hartmut luehr (Berlin, 2007)
