Internet piracy statistics: what you need to know
With a worldwide average of just under 120 million transactions a day in 2015, P2P file sharing is a real danger for studios, media organizations and content producers. Data taken from TECXIPIO’s comprehensive internet piracy statistics show 43% of the content shared illegally in 2015 was movies and 26% was TV shows. Both these percentages show an increase on the 2013 figures. Given that the number of transactions worldwide is increasing year to year, illegal distribution of copyrighted content is on the rise.*
A problem wherever it occurs
Two countries, Russia and China, accounted for more than 5 million P2P file sharer per day in 2015*. However, internet piracy statistics show that the illegal file sharing is prevalent around the globe in all markets – both developed and emerging. Wherever it occurs, P2P file sharing decreases revenue from box offices, advertising, sales, rentals and subscriptions. The economic consequences for copyright holders cannot be underestimated.
