Also, along with leaders, a group of experts was assigned to each particular topic which would be a main focus, but would also serve as support for all other 9 strategic topics.
Time and time again our research highlighted how it was innovation -- in the form of user friendly licensed services the user friendly part is important On the other hand, increased legal enforcement appeared to have if anything only a temporary effect.
It appears that others are now exploring the same area, and doing quite an incredible job with it. A group of Dutch researchers at the Institute for Information Law at the University of Amsterdam have just released a Global Online Piracy Study that does an incredible job looking at the same questions with even more thorough data and analysis.
They surveyed 35, people and looked at situations in 13 different countries larger than our sample.
The conclusions of the report appear notably similar to our own research, which is great to see as it certainly helps to confirm what we found: Still, despite the abundance of enforcement measures, their perceived effectiveness is uncertain.
Therefore, it is questionable whether the answer to successfully tackling online copyright infringement lies in additional rights or enforcement measures, especially if these will not lead to additional revenue for copyright holders and risk coming into conflict with fundamental rights of users and intermediaries.
Instead, it might be sensible to search for the answer to piracy elsewhere — in the provision of affordable and convenient legal access to copyright-protected content. The report also found the following, suggesting that the trend that we saw clearly demonstrated back in has continued: Between andthe number of pirates decreased in all European countries except Germany.
As with our report that found enforcement actions had little to do with decreasing piracy rates, this report found similar things: It might be tempting to argue that an increase in the use of certain enforcement measures against obviously illegal platforms has contributed to the decreasing number of pirates in Europe.
However, a lack of evidence concerning the effectiveness of most enforcement measures and the strong link between piracy and the availability and affordability of content suggests otherwise: Higher per capita income coincides with a lower number of pirates per legal users. Moreover, pirates and legal users are largely the same people: That latter point has been shown in over a dozen studies previously, and it's incredible that it still needs to be repeated: One interesting question might be why did Germany not see piracy decrease in the same manner as other countries.
So there's some argument that there may be a natural floor on this sort of thing, below which you can't go much lower. There are some other potential reasons hinted at within the report, including that the population of Germany is older than in most of those other countries, and it's one of the very rare cases of a country where physical sales of music still is ahead of digital sales.
Either way this is a really useful addition to the economic literature on this issue, suggesting yet again as we've argued for years, that focusing on greater enforcement has always been a huge waste of time, resources and money -- and comes at tremendous costs to free speech and innovation.
Incredibly, that's likely been massively counterproductive to the goal of reducing piracy, since we need that innovation in licensed services to help reduce piracy.
Of course, those who live in the world of the legacy industries have spent so many decades living and breathing the idea that enforcement is the only answer that I doubt this particular study will move the needle in convincing them to maybe start approaching things differently.Aug 06, · Yet Another Study Shows You Beat Piracy Through Innovation, Rather Than Enforcement from the water-is-wet,-except-to-hollywood dept.
