Video piracy is big business in Ireland and is said to be worth £20 million a year with much of this going to the IRA.

Earlier this month, the Minister for Justice announced an investigation into the Garda Anti-Racketeering Unit.

This report includes reconstructions of Garda raids and interviews with some key figures in the video rental market.

Pat Murphy, President of the Video Retailers Association comments on how piracy is affecting the video retail market. Dr. Colum Kenny, Lecturer at Dublin City University, talks about the availability of pirated videos. André Graham, M.D. Columbia Tristar Home Video (Irl) also talks about the production and distribution of pirated videos.
