EUIPO publishes a new report about online copyright Infringement in the European Union

The new report "Online Copyright Infringement in the European Union: Music, Films and TV (2017-2020), Trends and Drivers" examines the consumption of copyright-infringing content in the EU Member States and the UK for TV programmes, music, and film, using a variety of desktop and mobile access methods, including streaming, downloading, torrents and ripping software. The report’s main conclusion is that digital piracy is declining for all three types of content. Except for a temporary increase in film piracy in the spring of 2020, the decline continued during the COVID pandemic: piracy decreased by 20 % in 2018, by 6 % in 2019 and by 34 % in 2020.
