Consumption of pirated online film, television and music content in the EU is falling, according to a new report by the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO).
Today’s research shows that between 2017 and 2018, overall access to pirated content in the EU fell by 15.1%on average. The fastest decline was seen in consumption of pirated music, which dropped by 32% on average across the EU, followed by consumption of pirated films (19.2% decrease) and consumption of pirated television content (7.7% decrease). However, the average internet user in the EU accessed online pirated content 9.7 times per month in the first nine months of 2018, on both fixed and mobile devices. The report draws on a data set of more than 70 billion internet connections over a 21 month period between January 2017 and September 2018.
