It all sounds pretty complicated to me!

To my best knowledge, there isn't any law
on cable/satellite tv here..., 
(sat-tv is a fairly recent phenomenon so they 
haven't had time to pass a law yet)

An owner of a tv-set is required by law to 
purchase a license.
(i bought a license just to be on the safe side, 
though i dont know anybody else who's bought 

Though sat-tv company will probably cut you off if 
they find out, is it possible for them to find out 
free-loaders of this kind through their equipment?
