Pirate radio = drug dealing and municipal broadband is anti-competitive censorship

Re: America

In reality, all this pirate radio guff is the USA copying what we came up with over Pirate Radio in the 60's and 70's - see Marine Offences Act. All the same arguments (although it was more propping up the BBC back then, which was being far too Reithian in overwhleming circumstances).

And for land-based pirates, see the history of Radio Jackie, who had the last laugh and are now one of the few "independent" stations not part of the Global network.
