UK Government to Introduce Law to Protect BBC from Piracy

UK Government to Introduce Law to Protect BBC from Piracy

The British government is going to rush through the bill to close the so-called “iPlayer loophole”. The latter is known for allowing people to watch BBC shows on catchup services lacking a TV license. Besides, the UK culture secretary also wondered whether popular BBC1 programs were “distinctive” enough and launched another initiative on the devastating impact of adblockers on the newspaper industry.


The secretary said that closing the loophole couldn’t wait any longer and must be done as soon as possible through secondary legislation that could be introduced this summer. The loophole in question already costs the BBC about $210m a year, and the offer to close it was made during negotiations with the broadcaster last summer. It was agreed that the white paper outlining the government’s views on charter renewal would be published this spring and welcome any attempts to make BBC programming more distinctive. The culture secretary was previously criticized for questioning whether the BBC should be showing some programs, but now says that it’s up to the BBC and future regulators to decide which programs were distinctive enough.

There was a report on the market impact of the BBC commissioned by the local Department for Culture, Media & Sport. The report suggested that entertainment shows were costing commercial rivals about $160m in revenues annually.

In respond, the shadow secretary of state for culture, media and sport noticed that the secretary of state seemed more concerned about helping the corporation’s commercial rivals than in helping BBC satisfy its audiences, and suggested that the culture secretary must stop lecturing the BBC about what content it should and should not be producing.

BaBaDapper avatarThese cnuts bleed £145.50 a year from anyone who has a colour tv. You may not even watch the BBC but hey...the LAW says you must pay for the existence of these wonkers. The Govt was keen on introducing free market concepts to things like electricity supply but the 'BBC tax' should have had its end many years ago.

So excuse me because when I read "costs the BBC about $210m a year" because people can watch iPlayer (which btw on my NowTV box is totally crap and I need to exit the app and restart it to see the next episode of a series) and not have to pay the BBC tax I feel a slight need to laugh at their 17th century ideas.

So what is their game here anyway? To introduce a 'computer' tax because someone could watch iPlayer? If that sounds absurd, then ladies and gentlemen, please notice how that crazy stupid idea is pretty much how the BBC Tax actually is right now. (You have a device that could watch the BBC but regardless of the fact you don't, you still have to pay this stupid tax.

So BBC - just go commercial - unless you don't have the skill to survive in a true market.

Selsley avatarso the pedos at the bbc get more protection from the law
the law also states we are responsible for not funding criminal organisations which the biased news reporting and pedo protection made by the bbc are both criminal, we shouldnt even be funding the corrupt government with taxes

Embolism avatar@3 it is very simple use a uk ip address with your vpn and if they default and ask your postcode just give them one for someone you know has a licence,simples. It must be said the tv licence is steep, but over 60 percent of it goes to ITV and the other main channels in cross funding their budgets. (:^D)
