@perloid thanks! This part was my next question:

> As part of its enforcement regime, the BBC is authorised to carry out surveillance using powers defined by the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000 and the Regulation of Investigatory Powers (British Broadcasting Corporation) Order 2001. The BBC is permitted by the latter order to use surveillance equipment to detect unlicensed use of television receivers.

That is .

@maiki I'm wondering when I'll be getting a visit from an Enforcement Officer or will see a TV detector van outside my house.

@perloid I hope you are joking! I saw this documentary about that in the UK, some years ago...

V for Vendetta! Yeah, the BBC can be brutal with those vans!
