Online Copyright Infringement in the European Union: Music, Films and TV (2017-2020), Trends and Drivers

European Observatory on Infringements of Intellectual Property Rights

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. There were significant differences among the Member States. The average internet user in the EU accessed copyright-infringing content 5.9 times per month during 2020. Latvian users accessed illegal sites almost twice as often, whilst Polish users did so 3.8 times per month. Overall, Austria, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Romania, Spain and the UK, were below the EU average. An econometric analysis of the factors that influence these differences in piracy rates among the EU Member States was also carried out. This analysis highlights the importance of socio-economic factors such as income inequality, and the knowledge among consumers of legal offers....Less

Its objective is to provide useful information to support the analysis of IPR infringements in the EU and the development of appropriate countermeasures.

Leading indicators for IPR-intensive industries

European Observatory on Infringements of Intellectual Property Rights

The economic impact of the COVID-19 crisis in industries that intensively use different intellectual property rights (IPRs) for the EU as well as the four largest Member States, have been analysed in ...More The economic impact of the COVID-19 crisis in industries that intensively use different intellectual property rights (IPRs) for the EU as well as the four largest Member States, have been analysed in a previous EUIPO’s discussion paper. This new paper supplement the analysis of the rates of change of IPR-intensive industries with leading indicators that provide early signs of the future trend of IPR-intensive industries. These leading indicators are diffusion indices that do not provide a quantitative forecasting of the aggregates but they show when the IPR indicators will change from an acceleration to a deceleration phase (or vice versa) with up to 7 months of advance....Less
