  • Inform all stakeholders of the implications of Brexit for the sector
  • Request a continuation of the process of restoring adequate funding to Screen Ireland, which should be benchmarked against similar agencies in competing jurisdictions
  • Advocate effective measures to combat television licence fee evasion, currently costing the sector approximately €40m per annum in lost revenue, thereby helping to stabilise the funding of public service broadcasting
  • Urge the establishment of an interagency taskforce to tackle digital piracy in view of Exchequer revenue evaded, jobs lost and the 9.8% year on year increase to 590 million visits to piracy websites by Irish internet users (Source: MUSO Annual Piracy Report
