I am not convinced by the argument that European copyright licences

mother tongue, the same as Italian.  For German the figure is 18%.
German broadcasters are very liberal at making their television channels
freely available.  The Italians make SD RA1, RAI2 and RAI3 available
unencrypted.


Have you seen the quality of TV programming in Italian and German? THAT is why they want English content, and also why their own content is not worth protecting.
