A study for UNIVIDEO entitled “Young people and the audiovisual. An unprecedented and eclectic relationship” highlights important innovations in the development of the audiovisual market.  The research, by FAPAV/Ipsos, concludes that young people should learn early about the investments made, and professional opportunities afforded by, the media industry; and have sufficient understanding of copyright that they resist the temptation to consume content illegally.

The FAPAV/Ipsos research said that 65% of young pirates between 16 and 25 years old do not consider the viewing of pirated films, series and unofficial sources to be a serious issue.
