Legality

Apparently the legality is quite a grey area. According to one source, the Rediffusion network is no longer covered by legal means: it is perfectly legal to remove the cable as long as you return the cable to Rediffusion (the old system was that people who had Rediffusion network junction boxes attached to their houses were 'paid' rental for their land space!). However, since Rediffusion no longer exists (see later for the buy-out info) and no contracts or agreements have been signed with MultiChannel Cable who now own the infrastructure, it may be interpreted by a lawyer that a third party has every right to cut the cable on their property!

Of course, this may be a bit more grey where it applies to actually tapping the line!
