Have done some reading on the EU piracy report and there are some interesting things to note about it.

Firstly, the report does not prove that piracy doesn’t have an effect on sales but does show that illegal downloads can boost the sales of video games. it also state that the only negative link between piracy and sales were from blockbuster films with a displacement rate of 40%.

Also it was suggested that the report was suppressed by the EU Commission because two officials jointly published an academic paper that shows the link between piracy and blockbuster films and how it effects sales but omitted the other finding in the report. They also didn’t cite that the information used in the paper was from the original study.
