5% of UK Users Branded as “Hardcore Pirates”

5% of UK Users Branded as “Hardcore Pirates”

The local Intellectual Property Office has revealed that about 25% of all UK media consumers pirated at least once during a recent 3-month period. The same report showed that infringement of video content was up this year, but music has shown a significant decrease.

In fact, the statistics showed that about 15% of Internet users consumed infringing content during the above said period, which is about 6.7 million people. But the study considered only users who had actually consumed content online rather than all Internet users, so the number of infringers increased to 25%.

The use of P2P networks has declined from 12% to 10% among all Internet users and from 26% to 23% among infringers. So far, uTorrent has been the most popular client used for infringing, but its usage has also declined from 17% of infringers in 2015 to 12% this year. 11% of them use The Pirate Bay for content downloading. As for infringement levels, they also vary across content formats, with the highest levels relating to music: 8% of all Internet users obtain it from unauthorized sources. 7% of users admit obtaining TV shows from illegal sources, 6% infringed movies. At the same time, consumption of legitimate content has gone up.

More interesting was people’s motivation to obtain illegal content: because it is free (49%), convenient (45%) and quick (42%). As a result, about 25% of infringers say that cheaper prices would make them pirate less, while 20% say that availability of legal sources would help.

Nevertheless, there are relatively few hardcore pirates in the United Kingdom: only 5% of all Internet users in the country admitted to exclusively obtaining content from illegal sources.

No avatarHold the phone.... What program are they using to find out who is pirating? Would that level of violating peoples privacy not be 10 times worse?

No avatarNot really, it's called using a phone and asking people who just boast about it.

No avatarHere is the real question. If you have access to the library which has almost everything, would you use it or would you visit 10 different libraries which charge you money to use them? The other libraries also remove content, have drm, and support suing little kids, grandmas, dead people, and hundreds of thousands of others? I think I would stick to the first library, unless I just had money to blow. This is coming from someone who in the past had purchased over 500 vhs, 500 records, 500 cd's, 300 DVD's, and video games. I think they already made enough off me. I learned it was a scam and decided to not support them. Who wants to listen to commercials on videos anyways and buy stuff that winds up to be not worth the money you paid for it anyhow? Oh yeah, price fixing, region drm, etc also was a let down. Now if you really like the artist/etc, you can buy their merchandise after you have sampled it such as t shirts/etc. That is if they mean that much to you. Its what I do and did after being shafted many times in the past by mafiaa for inferior products.

No avatarI live in the UK and I tend to download tv shows that would probably never reach our shores, from Canada, Australia and of course the USA. I love British shows but there just aren't enough GOOD shows to entertain me like the ones I download. And I also refuse to subscribe to Murdoch's Sky!

No avatar"I think they already made enough off me. I learned it was a scam and decided to not support them"

Please... cry me a river. Stop the excuses and stop trying to justify your actions.

"Now if you really like the artist/etc, you can buy their merchandise after you have sampled it such as t shirts/etc"

Again, excuses to justify your behavior... just be honest and say it how it is.
