One in Three of us copy DVDs

Bookmark and Share

Despite all of the warnings, news and other attention being given to this subject recently, it still appears that over a third of UK users will admit to copying copyrighted material onto a DVD or actually copying DVDs for their friends, or to sell.

A survey of 5331 people, conducted by Futureresource Consulting, has blown the lid off of the country’s computer users’ attitude to the claims by copyright holders, who say that they are losing millions, with thirty eight per cent of UK users saying that they have copied a DVD within the last six months.

The problem for the copiers is that they have given over too much information to the authorities now.

They know that there is one in three, but they also know the age range and sex of those people most likely to copy DVD’s.

So if there is anyone out there who is male and aged between eighteen and twenty four, then watch out, because they are the people in the UK most likely either copy or buy copied DVDs.
