Such terms as file-sharing, P2P, and online piracy has become known throughout the globe within the past decade. At the very beginning people were excited about them, then they were actively sharing them, and finally they have started to fear them because of aggressive and absurd measures taken against piracy.
Trying to justify the methods through which copyright owners seek justice, while failing to respect human rights, the copyright industries have recently commissioned the International Intellectual Property Alliance (IIPA) to conduct a study revealing the real situation in the market. In co-operation with the Congressional International Anti-Piracy Caucus, this outfit has published the results of this study at an event that took place in Washington, DC. However, instead of analysing the damaged caused by piracy, the published report has adopted a pragmatic stance, claiming that piracy prevents growth in the United States and all over the globe.
We’ll start with the suggestion that growth prevention isn’t exactly the same with leading to staggering job losses, as the industries claimed before. In addition, the report revealed that in the times of recession the copyright industry had attracted more money into the system than the entire economy of the United States. Moreover, copyright industries pay better than the average in the United States (15-27% more).
Meanwhile, the report showed that incomes from foreign countries have been continuously increasing thanks to this new thing known as Internet. It turned out that core copyright firms made $128 billion in foreign markets back in 2007; which can be compared to the 2010’s $134 billion – and this is taking into account the recession and stuff.
Finally, the results of the study indicated that the massive job losses were unreal. In fact, during the recession the employment in this area of business remained stable, with few exceptions. The same can’t be said about other industries that had to cut job positions off and pushed the unemployment in the country to up to 9%. In other words, the study only brought good news like steady jobs, good payment and growing revenues, but the copyright industry keeps insisting on the opposite, saying that intellectual property has to be strongly protected both in the US and abroad.
