Study Revealed Copyright Holders Responsible For 24% Infringing Traffic

The Head of Piracy Intelligence for Envisional announced recently that the availability of legitimate material in the United States is the main reason why it has the lowest infringing traffic worldwide. In other words, the study proves that the level of infringement in the US and abroad could be even lower if rights owners increased the availability of their works and made viable legal alternatives available to P2P users.

The main part of the problem, Envisional believes, is the refusal of copyright holders to give their customers what they want. Instead, they stick to outdated business models, limiting their copyrighted works to certain geographic locations, but missing the fact that people would turn to the Internet to bypass their restrictions.

According to a new NBC Universal study, around 24% of global Internet traffic is piracy-related. About 18% of this traffic is BitTorrent. Meanwhile, just 17% of American traffic is infringing. Dr. David Price’s study also revealed that hosting websites are responsible for 5% (and video streaming services – for 1.5%) of the world’s infringing traffic.

The most interesting fact is that music only composes less than 3% of infringing torrents, while adult content, movies, and TV shows are far more popular (36%, 35%, and 13% accordingly). The question rises whether it is possible for pirates to infringe this kind of content so frequently given that there’s a viable legal alternative. Actually, music has iTunes which is doing great to satisfy music fans requirements. However, thanks to rights owners, there’s no similar iTunes for video content. Despite the Apple’s efforts, movie studios and TV broadcasters still fear of upsetting their present business model. Instead, they for some reason only release films and TV shows in certain locations at certain dates, and for certain prices, even though it only drives consumers from foreign countries to illegal alternatives. As for the movies, the entertainment industry made the first step last year, when it sped up the release dates in China and Russia to decrease piracy over there, but why not make another step and just show a film everywhere at once? Undoubtedly, that would be much cheaper than trying to seize all bootleg DVDs from the stores and illegal CAM copies from the web.

Crashman_123 avatarI live in AUSTRALIA, and many US and British programs simply are NOT AVAILABLE here. Or if they ARE, are usually 6-12 months after original air dates. A good example is a new series, "The Cape", which, IF WE'RE LUCKY, MIGHT show here next year. Therefore I'm FORCED to download it from torrents, as it's "NOT AVAILABLE IN YOUR LOCATION" from the NBC website (A message I get from OTHER TV shows websites as well).

There are MANY BBC documentaries that are not (or have never been) shown in Australia that I'm forced to get THEM through torrents as well.

It all depends on what the TV Networks THINK people will like, but if too many people DON'T like it (even if I DO) the show gets CANCELLED, and I'm back to torrents again.
