    I don't see why BBC iplayer can't be accessed outside of UK to BBC licence payers through the simple provision of a password based upon the licence fee having been paid by the user. Whatever terms the BBC reached with its performers/producers/writers etc over broadcast were all made within the terms of the UK licence which I pay. The principle should be that BBC products are always available to the licence payer and not restricted except by virtue of copyright.

    This is a well-worn argument. The copyright is negotiated for territory (the UK) and is not exportable via your TV Licence.

    Look here (amongst other places) www.bbc.co.uk/dna/mb...
