One-third of Aussies 'are pirates'

Freetarding round the world

Combat fraud and increase customer satisfaction

One-third of adult Australians have practiced piracy in the last 12 months, a study has estimated.

The study, released by the Australian Federation Against Copyright Theft, claims that piracy sucks $A1.37bn out of the Australian economy.

Direct effects claimed by AFACT amounted to $A575m, the study claims – including $A225m attributed to “secondary piracy”, in which an individual either “views or borrows” pirated material (presumably whether or not the viewer knows the full legal status of what they’re watching).

Oxford Economics and Ipsos MediaCT carried out the study. AFACT did not publish the questionnaire used to arrive at the one-third conclusion.

The economic multiplier effects, for those willing to get past the press release, include reduced spending on recreation, clothing, housing and household goods. So, freetards, hang your heads in shame: not only were more than 6,000 jobs lost due to piracy, but the victims of your crime are now homeless, naked, hungry and bored. ®
