Why Piracy Monitor?
Piracy Monitor’s Managing Director Steve Hawley says:
“Video piracy has been somewhat below the radar until just recently. I started to notice low-key reporting about it in my ‘peripheral vision’ in 2018.
“Getting multiscreen / interactive TV and advertising to work has distracted the video industry from the serious issue of theft. But now, video providers (not just pay TV) have become so squeezed – between increasing content costs and consumer pressure on price – that anti-piracy is finally being seen as a way to stay afloat.
“This is why we need an independent voice and this is why we launched Piracy Monitor. Thank you.”
