    Abstract

    This research examines the systemic factors that perpetuate illegal broadcasting. It is primarily based on interviews conducted with UK policy makers, lobbyists and activists between May and August 2009, and analysis of documents sourced in part through applications under the Freedom of Information Act. The research finds that illegal broadcasting plays a key role in the value chain of production within the urban music industry and that current digital radio policy is unlikely to reduce its prevalence. Evidence suggests it is an increasingly marginalised issue in regulatory discourse and there is growing emphasis on enforcement at the expense of licensing alternatives. The research also uncovers elements of informal decisionism, raising question marks over the transparency and accountability of the broadcasting policy process.
