    BBC and TV Licence should be illegal.

    For me it's the fact that they've extended the licence to cover any live streaming. So according to them you need a licence if you watch a Youtube live stream. How can they possibly justify that? A Youtube live stream makes profit for the BBC?

    I guess that we’ll have to add sharing a password alongside downloading a car when it comes to the list of things that we shouldn’t do. (edited)

    "There is no evidence to suggest any of the major streaming video operators in the UK would do this."

    "There is no evidence to suggest any police forces in the UK would open an investigation into someone for sharing their password to a streaming service."


    Of course not. That would be an utter waste of time and money and they know that.

    Out of principle I’d be willing to do the time. Imagine if Mandela gave in to the oppressors..

    What's the time? Three months inside will see me through winter, free from the stress of food and energy prices.

    So it's illegal to share something I've paid for.
    Will they be wanting a payment soon if people are visiting your house and watching it.

    "What are you in for?"
    "I robbed a bank"
    "What about you?"
    "Murder"
    "And you?"
    "I shared a Netflix password"

    After the outcry, the IPO updated their website and removed that line so password sharing was only illegal for a few hours.

    It's a civil issue and with vpns, ability to hide IPS and Netflix allows you to use so many devices so that's several Mac addresses, they'd have to go some to prove it.. (edited)
