Chauvinism meets money meets muddle

Make head or tail of this –

After prominent Hungarian composers and musicians protested against the definition laid down in the media law as to what makes a piece of music Hungarian, e.g. its lyrics should be in the mother tongue, lawmakers endorsed an amendment proposal to the media law to recognise all songs written by Hungarian artists as Hungarian regardless of the language used.

From a Government of lawyers.
