[THIN] Re: OT : Advice Sought

I don't think you could call licensing TV's keeping up with anything...I
remember years ago(we are talking at least 25) when I sold TV's in the US at
JC Penneys, that we had to remove a card from each TV and fill it out and it
got sent to the FCC.  I am pretty sure that this isn't a requirement
anymore. 

I fail to see what purpose "knowing" someone can receive open air free
signals has.  In this case sounds like just another "tea tax" to me.  God
bless America.

It has. Anyone selling you a graphics TV card is obliged to let the TV
licensers know.

I'm not sure if the legislation has kept up to date with things like that.
As far as I'm aware it hasn't been updated for decades although the wording
was always woolly. "television receiving apparatus" and suchlike.

Sounds like trouble if you have a TV tuner on your graphics card.

Now you're asking. About £120 I think. Does the black and white license
still exist? That used to be about £35.

So how much does this license cost?
