Wednesday 8 February 2017 | 17:55 CET | News
Nearly 71 percent of Indian consumers are aware that producing or sharing pirated video content is illegal, and 64 percent know that streaming or downloading pirated content is illegal. Despite this high level of awareness, 66 percent of them still choose to watch pirated content, according to a report from Irdeto. The survey also found that 56 percent of Indian consumers who watch pirated content could be convinced to pirate less, or even stop watching, when told that piracy could hinder studio investment and cause a drop in the quality of content.
