London School of Economics: Online piracy is not the scourge of the media industry

Online piracy is not the scourge of the media industry, as proponents of a crackdown on copyright infringement claim, says a new study. Creative business is doing well, with those embracing the new realities of digital sharing even flourishing.

The study by the London School of Economics  says that claims by industry lobbyists of damage from piracy are  largely exaggerated. Meanwhile, policies aimed at curbing illegal  file sharing that that the likes of the British Phonographic  Industry (BPI) and the British Video Association are neither  efficient nor help the entertainment industry to boost its bottom  line. 

  The policy report suggests that attempts to stop digital sharing  and close sites like The Pirate Bay are going against the natural  development of creative communities and advise to review UK’s  attitude to copyright.
