|Bruce was happy while having |
his daily amount of Downtown Abbey ...
The 1709 Blog has engaged in conversation with one of its many friends about payment of ... TV licences in the UK. According to our friend, about half of his/her time [that’s exciting] since arriving in this country has consisted of aggressive letters [pretty much mirroring this] from TV Licensing UK telling him/her that he/she will be going to prison if he/she does not pay for a TV licence.
In response to this incessant mail that tends to accumulate in the common mailbox of a transient student flat, our friend has prompted a query about the effectiveness of this method:
"Has anyone investigated compliance rates with the UK's demands to pay TV license fees (and does anyone ever pay the black and white TV rate?!) as well as what kind of reactions to copyright law this approach inspires in the general population?"

when the postman rang (twice)
Our friend would find it most interesting to see the cost/benefit analysis on amount spent with nagging letters vs. the amount of people that need to respond to make it all worthwhile, and find whether a more economical all-round measure could be found for supporting the TV content-providers.
Can anyone help?
