The damage of piracy

The audiovisual piracy it is a transversal phenomenon that affects all age groups, starting as early as the under 15. The incidence affects 37% of adult Italians and 39% of 10-14 year olds. Only 32% believe that illegally using audiovisual content represents a very serious behavior. Therefore, the need to strengthen communication and awareness-raising initiatives on the subject, which is still too underestimated in the common perception and which instead causes more than 1 billion euros a year in damage to the country system, is therefore evident, putting 5,900 jobs at risk.
