Piracy Doesn’t Hurt Artists Financially

Piracy Doesn’t Hurt Artists Financially

While pro-copyright groups and entertainment industry are calling to fight against file-sharing to protect the interests of the content creators, a recent survey among almost 4,000 musicians has proved that around 1,000 of them are pirating the works of other musicians. Although the industry is proud of the opposite, the younger generation of musicians thinks that file-sharing can really help them to gain an audience.

The Dutch survey, published at the same day as the government announced of its plans to prohibit file-sharing entirely, revealed that the artists themselves don’t consider file-sharing that negative. 4,000 respondents of all ages, including artists, filmmakers, authors, and photographers, outlined their position on this controversial subject.

First of all, it turned out that artists are pirates themselves, or at least a healthy percentage of them. 22% of the respondents confessed that they had downloaded illegal content within the last year, while another 7% were not sure or refused to answer this question. Those who did download copyrighted works admitted it was mostly music – more than 80%, while about 40% of them also downloaded films. Less popular were e-books and video games.

The same survey revealed the position on financial losses file-sharing causes artists. The most interesting result was that only 12% of musicians confirmed that file-sharing hurt them, while the majority of respondents weren’t convinced of any financial harm done. Moreover, some of the artists actually thought the opposite was true. Instead, they think that file-sharing can help to promote their creative content. Over half of respondents agreed that file-sharing helps them to introduce their works to the public, while only 5% disagreed with that. The recognizable trend was that the younger artists mostly appreciated promotional benefits of file-sharing.

When questioned about the DRM, the major part of the respondents admitted that DRM is hurting legitimate customers, but 70% of them still wish their works were protected by DRM. Another interesting respond was given on the question of whether individual file-sharers should be treated more strictly – around 60% of artists said that they should. However, the results are clear: the majority of Dutch artists do not believe that illegal file-sharing hurts them financially.

trialNerror avatarThat's funny stuff. Artists that want stricter treatment for illegal file-sharers are illegally file-sharing as well. What a madhouse of a world this is!
