The question is worth asking if we rely on the results of a recent study by GfK. The latter proving that the followers of illegal downloading would be much better students that honest customers when it comes to go to the theaters or buy the DVD of a film.
While the fight against piracy is still as sharp in the United States and France, a survey commissioned GfK to the give the results for the least surprising. According to this, not only the “pirates” are more likely to move to the cinema to see the latest products but they do not balk at legally available movies that interest them. Unlike the myths that tend to impersonate human beings devoid of any morality, the survey would not have had the desired effect on his partner.
TorrentFreak told us the story unveiled by the German Telepolis site. A studio, we will not know which, was paid for the services of GfK to obtain a new mapping of illegal downloading. The results are pretty amazing. The “hackers” consider download sites as “a free trial before you buy.” The same individuals are also those who buy more DVDs and would travel on average more in the rooms that guests called honest. This is not the first study would be consistent with the “I pirate (…) so I bought” .
All of the study deserves attention carefully, but it will remain confidential. An anonymous source cited by Telepolis GfK said that the studio behind the investigation would be disappointed if he decided that it would not be published. GfK policy is clear on this, the sponsor has the right to remain anonymous and the study thrown in the trash at its own discretion. The same source said that if “you are downloading movies, you have an increased interest in the cinema.” Something to think about the majors of the 7th Art?
