New online copyright research released
The survey received more than 2400 responses which show the number of Australians consuming online content has increased since 2015. Australians are also consuming online content differently—streaming more, and downloading less. The results also show that there has been an increase in the consumption of lawful content across music, movies, video games and TV programs collectively.
Consistent with results from previous years, the 2018 results show quality, convenience and price are the key differentiating factors which motivate consumers to use paid services rather than consume unlawful content.
The online copyright infringement survey was first conducted in 2015 and in 2018 was conducted by Indigenous Professional Services (IPS). It seeks to understand Australian consumption trends across music, movies, video games and TV programs, and the attitudes that drive copyright infringement behaviour for this content.
