An outfit named Intellectual Property Awareness Foundation (IPAF) is an organization engaged in fighting file-sharing. This outfit has recently commissioned a new research in order to demonstrate the only indicator: how much online piracy is hurting movie and television industry.
The survey revealed that 55% of the respondents said they did download copyrighted material from different file-sharing networks, including BitTorrent trackers. Meanwhile, the chief executive officer of Intellectual Property Awareness Foundation pointed out that public actually loves their entertainment, because people are seen to participate very actively in downloading content like films and TV shows. However, they don’t see any boundaries, let alone responsibilities, and they are also opportunistic, taking it any way they are able to.
The report came as no surprise, because such kind of researches always involves dramatic figures in order to justify eventual future draconian measures. For instance, a report published by the Australian Federation Against Copyright Theft (AFACT) claimed that online piracy of entertainment content is responsible for losses of $1.37 billion to the economy of Australia. In addition, unauthorized file-sharing can also be blamed for resulting in the loss of over 6,000 jobs annually. The results of the report in question also claimed that approximately 90 million pirated copies of films have been shared through peer-to-peer networks within the specified period. Although a lot of industry observers are sure that the results of such researches are usually fraudulent, the governments take it seriously and pass new pro-copyright laws violating basic human rights in favor of multinational corporations.

|If the 'entertainment' industry was'nt so greedy people would not download as much. As someone on a disability support pension I would not get to enjoy 99% of my viewing if I could not download. Also TV stations in Australia are so useless the either slot shows at varying times or don't have the good stuff from overseas at all, or soooooooooo late!If the law changes it will be one more win for the rich and another kick in the guts for the poor guy.|

|@ hrg lo0l why so many apps , short and simple VPN.|
|the australian entertainment industry and the australian actors and musicians are their own biggest enemy since they do not make anything worth buying.|
if they made things worth buying, then people would download it and buy it after they saw it was any good.
downloading is the only way to preview movies or music to see if its worth actually spending money on or just another piece of mediocre garbage that is not worth the gasoline to go to the store and buy it let alone being worth the money to buy the dvd or cd.
its already been proven they are not losing the money they say they are, and also its shown that there are people still buying after they download if its worth buying.

|If the 'entertainment' industry in Australia actually were 'Entertaining' maybe, just, maybe, people would buy some crap. If the 'entertainment' industry in Australia weren't a greedy bunch of pigs and charge BS prices, I'd buy more. Till then it's coming down the pipe. My Budget for 'Entertainment' is $60 a month, that just happens to be the same price as my internet connection. When will they learn....|
