User:Scott Gall~metawiki/Dumbest Law of the Week
- Country: South Africa
- Law: A license is required to purchase a television set.
- What would happen if this law was broken in New Zealand: This used to be a law in New Zealand (and it's still the law in Britain and Ireland,) but this was changed to a Broadcasting Fee of $100 per year in 1989, and then done away with altogether in 2001.
