The new law concerning this fee might make some people reconsider: BAKOM may now forcefully enter your flat without needing a search warrant, and it's no longer an offence, it's now a criminal matter.
Bakom does not have more power than the police and the police still need a search warrant.

We're not in a third world dictatorship.

Furthermore, not every search will necessarily reveal any evidence but will still cost money every time. I don't think they will just print out a list of people who are exempt and start kicking down doors in alphabetical order.

Add to that that many people either genuinely don't have devices, or know how to hide them. Very easy if the only device you have is a tablet or mobile phone.

Such a search will easily cost a 4 figure sum. That's the complete annual contributions of quite a few subscribers down the drain to spend hours rummaging through the linen and lifting floorboards of people who are having a bit of fun playing cat and mouse with them.

Scare tactics dear Watson. Not going to happen.
