A majority of people favour an 'updated' licence-fee which will presumably include some sort of sanction against people watching or catching up on BBC content on computers and other devices for free.  The finding is the most important conclusion from the BBC Trust's analysis of nearly 40,000 contributions from the public - the big picture is way below (click to go large).

However, I still can't find anyone saying how this online update will be made effective. I hope someone's got a smart, cheap idea.  This Tweet from yesterday's seminar on BBC funding makes it clear that geo-blocking isn't the answer. Helen (sic) has a longer blog about the issue here.
