Nearly a Quarter of U.S. Households Think Movies and Music Should be Free

That’s according to a survey released this week by Parks Associates.

“Almost half of pirates believe stealing content is acceptable because there are no consequences to the behavior” Jennifer Kent, VP, Research, Parks Associates, said in the release.

Parks is set to discuss the results during “Digital Piracy and Distribution,” a virtual event set to take place on Thursday, September 22, at noon Eastern time, as part of the firm’s Future of Video: OTT, Pay TV, and Digital Media.

“We’re talking to the largest streamers and studios in the world, and they are all expressing a similar feeling – piracy is a today problem to solve,” Matthew Fite, CTO, Verimatrix, added in Parks’ release. “I think that as an industry we have the opportunity and the responsibility right now to work together to find creative solutions to shut down piracy.”
