Online piracy in the EU is falling, thanks to more legal content offers and efforts to combat illegal sharing, according to the anti-priacy group Brein. The conclusions are based on a study by researchers at the University of Amsterdam that found piracy among consumers in various EU countries fell over the period 2014 to 2017. In Brein's home market the Netherlands, 37 percent of internet users downloaded or streamed content from an illegal source.
