BBC News - No long-term future for BBC licence fee, MPs say
[ Germany has similar set-up called GEMA, GenY and Millennials are at crossroads with GEMA in Germany because how it is set-up an how they consume their media on the road and at home, which doesn't reflect GEMA at all and isn't fair. And try watching a music video on YT, GEMA blocks all music on YT. ] // In light of changing technology and audience habits, the committee said "we do not see a long-term future for the licence fee in its current form". Any "profound changes" - such as abolishing the licence fee - should not be rushed, the report said. But it did say the BBC "must prepare for the possibility of a change in the 2020s. "We recommend that as a minimum the licence fee must be amended to cover catch-up television as soon as possible." It should also no longer be a criminal offence to avoid paying the licence fee, the report said.
