    Anyone can bring about criminal proceedings in the courts at their own expense. This is what happens with TVL. Similar to the RSPCA.

    Cautioning someone isn't arresting them; anyone can caution someone and henceforth any evidence gained is admissible in court. For organisations such as the TVL and RSPCA who are going to carry out a private prosecution a caution is necessary. NOTE a CAUTION not an ARREST.

    Get yourself down to Citizens Advice Bureau OP and they will be able to provide you with FREE LEGAL ADVICE. They could also send someone into court with you to advise you.
    Thanks for the clarification, I wasn't 100% sure about it.

    By the way if you get any response, post here for further advice. I'm sure many people will be able to give you the correct advie, but just be careful.

    Also, don't rush with them. Ask them to put all enquiries in writing and you should always respond in writing. This will save you a lot of hassle.

    There's more to this than meets the eye.
    If you admitted to watching live Chinese TV broadcasts then you need a TV license.
    I don't understand why everyone has negged this guy, infact he is entirely correct.

    TV Licensing is so bull****. My family turns on the TV only once a week for like half an hour. We have been pestered to pay the license, but F*CK them, I am not paying. They can shove a stick up their ass because the whole idea of this BBC thing is BULLS*IT.

    The TV Licensing Authority's under hand tactics have been highlighted on numerous occasions in the past and are well known.
    "'TV Licensing' is a trade mark of the BBC and is used under licence by companies contracted by the BBC to administer the collection of the television licence fees and enforcement of the television licensing system.

    The BBC is a public authority in respect of its television licensing functions and retains overall responsibility."

    I stand corrected.

    I thought it was a totally different entity as the name suggests. But since its part of the BBC, the onus on them is even greater then to ensure memebrs of the public are treated fairly.

    I wonder what kind of incentives are offered for money collected etc. by these companies.
