ONLINE PIRACY OF ENTERTAINMENT CONTENT KEEPS SOARING
The amount of Internet bandwidth used to illegally download movies, TV shows, music,
books, and video games has jumped 160% since 2010, a study says.
Despite the growth of Netflix, Amazon.com and other legal channels for watching
entertainment online, the volume of pirated movies, TV shows, music, books and video
games online continues to grow at a rapid pace.
The amount of bandwidth used for copyright infringement in North America, Europe and
Asia Pacific has grown nearly 160% from 2010 to 2012, accounting for 24% of total
Internet bandwidth, according to a study from NetNames, the British brand protection
firm.
At the same time, the number of people engaged in copyright infringement has grown
dramatically too. In January2013, 327 million unique users illegally sought copyrighted
content, generating 14 billion page views on websites focused on piracy, up 10% from
November 2011, according to the report.
