Number of European internet pirates declines, legal media consumption is rising

Originally published at:

The number of internet users in Europe that sometimes illegally downloads or streams music, movies, series, books or games has dropped between 2014 and 2017. At the same time, spending on legal products has been increased in the same period, according to a report from the University of Amsterdam and research company Ecorys based on surveys with nearly 35,000 respondents in 13 countries.

The respondent is only 35,000 and the EU is millions…so this sounds fishy-where alot of those responding are basically lying out of their teeth.

Lies, damned lies, and statistics…:wink:

I also found the footnote quite ironic:

“The study was possible thanks to financial support from Google and builds on previous studies for, among others, the Dutch government and the European Commission.”

Studies show that many studies are rigged.:wink:
