    I think going after landlords is a great move. If a landlord knows there is or will be illegal activity on their property with fed involved it might help. Landlords want to receive their rent check......and have everything quiet with no problems and no liability!

    What happens when the pirate facility is located in a private house?

    Hmmmm...is the operator the owner of the house?

    There seem to be a case of a pirate in Dorchester a few years ago that had it in his "Aunties" house....and she had no idea what it meant to be licensed / not licensed. It didn't take long for "auntie" to tell him to "get all that crap out of her house" cause she "wasn't risking her property so he can play radio!" LOL!

    If he IS the operator of the station AND the homeowner, and hasn't paid his fine, a lien on the house would probably do wonders!

    If the legislation that appears to be ready to clear the House gets through Congress and the President signs it, then the case appears similar to another person's car being used to commit a crime: forfeiture or a lien for the amount of the fine.

    In this case with 87.7 and 88.5, the landlord has to be in on it. They continue to come back on the air from the same exact location.

    Often, the landlords are several states away. Checking the Hillsborough County, FLA. records reveals the Tampa Part Pirate filed bankruptcy at some point. But it may have been as a result of the real estate collapse several years ago.
    Other infractions are mostly traffic violations.
