I'd check this one out a bit more carefully, perhaps. Someone I know was definite that they would have to buy a license just because they had the ability to watch iplayer on their PC.
I told them that it sounded crazy. They agreed, but were quite certain that:
- you need a license if you have "TV receiving equipment"
- a PC is now TV receiving equipment
I still think it sounds crazy, and I think I'd be inclined to call them and tell them exactly what my circumstances are, and see what they say, but I do know at least one otherwise same individual who convinced themselves that you need a license in this cirumstance.
...if you press it, they will come.
