Ireland wants "Broadcast License" - TV or no TV
Okay, this is mildly mobile-related:
Ireland plans legislation that would kill the good old TV license.
Replacement? A "Broadcast Charge" for every householder - even if there is no TV set. You watch "broadcast content" on a laptop via Youtube, or on your smartphone, you will have to cough up appr £120 per year.... Even if you own no TV, no computer, tab or phone!
Can anyone say, "nuts"?
How would they enforce that? Frisking pedestrians for smartphones?
Ban anonymous prepay sim-cards? Broadband dongles?
Are they nuts?
