Sharp Rise in Piracy Rates Across Sweden, Denmark, Finland & Norway

With Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Norway under the spotlight once again, Mediavision’s pan-Nordic consumer survey aims to measure unlicensed content consumption among 15 to 74-year-old respondents, across categories including movies and TV shows, and access to both via pirate IPTV services.

Recent developments in internet piracy show that the issue is still prevalent and growing. Here are some key points from the search results:

  • Digital content piracy is on the rise, with pirating films increasing by about 39% in 2022 compared to 2021, while visits to piracy websites to watch TV shows rose by about 9% [1].
  • Global internet piracy is growing rapidly in spite of stricter piracy laws in the US and the potential for harsh penalties. In three key regions – North America, Europe, and the Asia-Pacific – 23.8% of internet bandwidth is used for piracy[2].
  • Despite its persistence and massive economic impact, the consumption of film and TV content through improper channels remains poorly understood and difficult to assess accurately given the illicit nature of the practice[3].
  • The global piracy of films increased dramatically during the Covid pandemic, according to a report from the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative. While this spike in the viewing of pirated films “was an outlier, troubling trends continue to exist across all media sectors” [4].
  • Music piracy is still a problem, but the issue is worse for film and TV content. From January to August 2022, there were 141.7 billion visits to piracy websites, a 21.9% boost over the same eight-month period in 2021. The most dramatic increase came from film piracy, which grew 49.1% year-on-year[5].
  • Piracy is expected to continue to rise throughout 2023, with economic pressures being one of the factors contributing to the increase[1].
  • The Copia Institute published a study in 2015 that showed regulating content isn’t what stops piracy in the long term. “The evidence is quite strong that greater innovation… appears to lead to noticeable and long-lasting reductions in infringement,” the study said[1].
