He meant practical range - there will be areas both just in and just out of the nominal range that the broadcaster covers. After all, what about people who are in the area but get a lousy signal for whatever reason?
Seriously? That's like charging TV manufacturers for the ability to watch TV programmes, as they have no 'value' without content - and making that licensing depend both on where the viewer is and where the programmes come from so the viewer has to cough up multiple times.
Fighting a bad law and bad precedent does not mean defending one particular however-yucky example. This could as easily apply to Citizen Kane or Casablanca. The issue isn't how good the product is, it's who has a legitimate beef with whom, and what is a fair response.
Yes, it was the Democrat's copy of the Republican Manifesto, which they had kept in the 'Funny bin' along with the "Protocols of the Elders of Zion", the "Gay Agenda", and a much dog-eared and annotated Tea Party copy of "The Left-Wing Manifesto" which looked like they had taken as both gospel and guidance.
Oh yes, like nearly anyone who has either done something wrong, or is accused of doing something wrong. People *fight* to be allowed into court - not.
I bet if you were accused of serious crap, especially in another country by some government, you wouldn't be any more 'manful' either. So stop whining about your sour grapes that Snowden actually has a pair and did some good for the world.
Copypasta maybe, but it is educational and unfortunately accurate in its historic detail - a horrific blot on Britain's copybook. These people were treated as badly as slaves - if not worse - because of remote, uncaring control from London. It would take them another 70 years to win their freedom and probably greatly drove later Troubles. Small surprise there are so many 'Irish' in New York, Glasgow or Liverpool still.
