Description
This report considers the behaviour of the most active online copyright infringers over the period May 2012 – May 2013. The report’s findings include the following: over the year, 17% of internet users infringed copyright online; 2% of internet users were responsible for 74% all online copyright infringement; however, infringers also accounted for 32% by volume, and 40% by spend, of legally consumed digital content, spending more on average than non-infringers on both digital and physical content. The research was funded by the Intellectual Property Office (IPO) and carried out by Kantar Media on behalf of Ofcom. The report contains details about the methodology used.
