- Pirate radio: The term pirate radio lacks a specific universal interpretation. It implies a form of broadcasting that is unwelcomed by the licensing authorities within the territory where its signals are received, especially when the country of transmission is the same as the country of reception.

Therefore "pirate radio" can mean many things to many people. Pirate radio stations are sometimes called bootleg stations.
