Position paper on the Audiovisual Media Services Directive
This position paper looks specifically at the audiovisual sector and two fundamental European initiatives: the Country of Origin principle in the AVMS Directive and the definition of European works. It outlines the significant benefits the AVMS Directive has created for the UK audiovisual sector, the potential consequences of leaving the European Union, and recommendations on the transition period and future trade agreement with the EU. The UK has one of the largest audiovisual sectors in the world, contributing £16.83 billion to UK GVA, exporting £7.4 billion worth of audiovisual services worldwide including over £3 billion to the EU, and creating significant added value for the wider economy.
