In January, Parks Associates announced the report titled Video Piracy: Ecosystem, Risks, and Impact, an analysis and global forecast for video piracy that was researched and written by Steven Hawley of Piracy Monitor.
NPR’s Marketplace radio program, produced by Minnesota Public Radio, ran a radio segment on January 13th 2020 about password sharing, which included a comment by Piracy Monitor’s Steven Hawley about the research published by Parks Associates. Five seconds of fame distilled from a 30 minute interview. Marketplace followed it up with an article on January 28.
