Report: Piracy Shifts Away From Downloading to Video Streaming

[Digital Citizens Alliance‘s] preliminary findings showed that between the third quarter of 2013 and the third quarter of 2014, there was a “significant shift” to streaming and away from torrent file-sharing and downloads. According to the group, that poses a problem for enforcement in that it is more difficult to find the sources of video streams that are embedded in sites that traffic in infringing content. […] Their report, in which the organization commissioned MediaLink for research, is a followup to a study from last year that showed that sites that sell infringing movies, music and TV shows advertising reap some $227 million annually from advertising. Nearly 30% of large websites that traffic heavily in infringing movies, TV shows and music carried ads for premium, “blue chip” brands. – Ted Johnson, Variety   (Full Story: http://ift.tt/1AVhTEO )
