Broadcasters Should Be Able to Sue Pirates


That's is the subject of FCC Commissioner Michael O'Rielly's blog this week. O'Reilly says the truth about pirates are they are not cute; they are not filling a niche; they are not innovation test beds; and they are not training grounds for future broadcasters. "If broadcasting were a garden, pirate radio would be poisonous crabgrass. Put another way, pirate radio participants are similar to outlaws who rob a retail store and then sell the stolen inventory online. Everyone should agree that pirate radio stations ? by any definition ? are completely illegal."

Don't you mean "Really incoherent?" Mr. O'Reilly's comments are right on the money. I'll draw another parallel. Pirates are like tax cheats. Oh, wait. That's another thing they already are.

So your solution is to encourage more litigation? Wow... there's a REAL TRAILBLAZER?! Not really. When will this clown offer something, unique and bold, instead of trying to make headlines for tired,old tactics.
