The European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) recently published a study on the practice of piracy in Europe.
Legal content offers, a bulwark against piracy piracy
We learn in particular that piracy, relatively widespread a few years ago, is in significant decline. In question, the recent appearance of legal offers such as Netflix, Amazon Prime or Disney +. Thus, when content is legally available, nearly 80% of respondents abandon piracy in favor of their profits. It should be noted, however, that some content is not available in Europe, and even if VPNs allow access to it, this is the main situation in which piracy is considered "acceptable" by Europeans.
