# Having
The details of people who do not have a TV license contravenes the Data Protection Act, If you get a letter, or a visit from the TV licensing bods, tell them to Fuck Off and to remove your details from their computers and never to bother you again.

and if they have detected that you own a tv but your name isn't on the register he will make a visit and will earn £30 (i think) for ever license bought on the doorstep and he won't take any bullshit either.

# I have never
bought a TV license.
TV works fine without one.
Last time I was visited by an inspector blokey was about six years ago.
I pointed out that it is not an offence to not have a TV licence and he should go forth and multiply.
Went back indoors and discovered I'd missed an important bit of Eastenders.

If you have a Telly.
Which is why keeping details of everyone who does not have a licence contavenes teh Data Protection Act.
The assumption being made is that if you do not have a licence you are commiting a criminal act, whereas there are perfectly legitamate reasons for not having a licence.

(And Yes, Coventry is a bit odd.)
