HomeInsightsEuropean Union Intellectual Property Office Observatory publishes report on Online Copyright Infringement in the EU: Film, Music and TV

Article by

The report is based on an analysis of the 30 most frequently pirated creative works in each of the EU Member States, including films, TV series and music.

The study finds that piracy mainly affects creative works recently produced and released. TV series are the most frequently pirated creative works, but the relationship between piracy and popularity of the legal content is more difficult to ascertain, as is also the case for music.

The study also looks at the tastes of consumers of pirated content across the EU, and finds a high degree of homogeneity among the Member States, especially for film. To access the report, click here.
