With the Hollywood writers strike already taking its toll in the US, with many networks having to cancel programmes and air repeats, what could the medium to long-term implications be for the licensing industry?
While 2008 films are obviously in the can, what about those due in 2009/2010 which are caught up in the protests?
With the possibly of accompanying merchandising and licensing drives also having to be delayed, how will this impact on financial year results for those firms with movie and high profile TV licences on their books?
Are you concerned, or do you think it will have no impact at all?
