Re: Reality has a strong non-libertarian bias...

Exactly how does a single market affect that?

Someone Polish in Ireland or UK can buy Polish DVDs & CDs & Polish food.

They can install a dish and take out a sub to Cyfra

I can watch/listen FTA Polish, German, French, UK TV /Radio via satellite. At night get UK Radio, Daytime Five Live MW, R.Wales MW, and R4LW. All in Mid-West of Ireland.

The issue seems to be Pay TV services artificially limited.

But even outside of EU, "regionalisation" encryption of DVD, Blu Ray and Games is greed and laziness. Inside or outside EU It's nothing to do with protecting niche producers / languages / cultures.
