2019 online piracy forecast

April, 12; 2019. By
This magazine has proven in several ways that obtaining an item or product that can be copied digitally is extremely simple and does not cost money, due to the availability of them through online piracy systems.

Thus, recorded music, movies, videogames or books (and comics), can be found very simply on the internet through pirated systems and it is not necessary to pay for them for the end user in most of the world, and even in the countries like the USA where these products are still bought, piracy is also flagrant.

So to speak, movies are available to anyone for domestic use on the bright side of the Internet, so you do not have to pay anything. This fact will increase in favor of online piracy predictably as time goes by, since both music, films and books are not going to increase in download size, while telephony and data transmission networks predictably will reduce costs and increase speed and capacity. Therefore, a movie, which currently occupies approximately 1.6 gigabytes in a high resolution, will continue to occupy that size and the networks will improve, so that in five years surely the transmission of the films will be practically instantaneous.

All this is because the mix of countries involved, producers, and laws that act in this case, is not consistent, do not agree, and much will have to change the landscape for that to happen; in this way the final prediction is that in the short and medium term, discarding the long term purely for formal reasons, online piracy will continue to roam at ease from around the world or even go further.

This is catalyzed by the fact that the price that the user pays for these services tends to zero, as very well said about 10 years ago in his blog Jesus Encinar, founder of the portal Idealista.com. Therefore, both subscriptions to large amounts of online content, and the payment in advance to rent or buy a digital product is in a bubble that could explode shortly and that includes in one way or another all those actors that depend on the payment for viewing that is not free.
