Industry Voices—Hawley: Coronavirus piracy trends in the new normal

There have been some public reports that credential sharing has increased dramatically in recent months. A OnePoll study commissioned by Tubi reported that as of March, 42% of adults were sharing account credentials. By comparison, last July, Parks Associates estimated that 28% of broadband households were engaged in password sharing and piracy for 2019, rising by 10% in 2024. A follow up Parks Associates report that focused specifically on piracy released in January 2020 further detailed that about 72% of that 28% rate was due to password sharing. Coronavirus has certainly called such estimates into question.
