'A museum piece and no picture? Too bad, you'll have to pay anyway'

Museum Defies Public Service Authority

The Swedish public service authority for radio and tv communication is demanding the obligatory television fee from the local museum in Målilla for a vintage 1954 TV set that has been out of commission for decades. Museum director Roland Johnsson told the local daily Oskarshamns-Tidningen that he was informed by the authority that since there was a TV set he would have to pay the fee, regardless of its condition. ’But I will never pay,’ Johnsson told the newspaper. ’Let them send the bailiff.’ The yearly Swedish fee for receiving radio and TV programs is 260 dollars.  (KH)
