Economic Consequences Of Movie Piracy – Australia

A joint study undertaken by Ipsos and Oxford Economics on behalf of AFACT: Australian Federation Against Copyright Theft (AFACT) has indicated the scale of harm caused by movie piracy to the Australian economy in the 12 months up to Q3 2010, amongst adults aged 18 years and over.

The approach taken in building up these estimates offers a conservative view of piracy and does not treat every pirate view as a lost sale. As such, readers should consider these as indicators that piracy is at the very least causing this level of harm.

Here’s a link to the full study.
