Stamford, CT (PRWEB) August 20, 2014
Tru Optik, a big data start-up that empowers enterprises with the leading indicators and insight needed to better identify and monetize audience and consumer demand, today announced the release of their Digital Media Unmonetized Demand and Peer-to-Peer File Sharing Report. The report outlines by category, company and geography more than $275 billion of digital content pirated through peer-to-peer networks during the first six months of 2014.
To better describe the missed opportunity for content owners, distributors and marketers that results from audience engagement on peer-to-peer networks, the report introduces the concept of Unmonetized DemandTM. Unmonetized DemandTM is the consumer demand and consumption for which revenue is not currently captured.
The United States had the most peer-to-peer users and the most files downloaded over the first half of 2014. However, Brazil was the country with the highest level of Unmonetized DemandTM.
“This report quantitatively captures an enormous hole and opportunity for media, entertainment and advertising enterprises,” said Andre Swanston, CEO of Tru Optik. “The data we are able to analyze and segment shows the most heavily shared and pirated digital media assets and assigns a specific price to each download based on the value that consumption would have achieved through traditional download, purchase or streaming methods.”
Other key findings from the report included:
