cien I don't have any different definition for monopoly that what I've read here and in the links from there I've followed: [en.wikipedia.org...]
Legally I cannot figure out how they have a monopoly right now.
Coercive? I don't think so... [en.wikipedia.org...]
Natural? IDK... from what I've read it doesn't seem like it. [en.wikipedia.org...]
londrum is saying there should be a law, and I honestly don't know if they qualify as one now or not according to the law... My guess is they don't legally have one but they could, and if they don't since they're 'in bed with' some intelligence agencies it's probably going to be very difficult to get one passed.
I really don't know if they legally qualify right now or not, but I think if people are going to say they have a monopoly, then they should have an idea of what type it is, because there's more than one...
