Experts estimated the volume of the Internet piracy market in Russia

According to experts, the growth of the market of Internet piracy in Russia was 21% compared to last year and reached 85 million dollars. The number of requests in popular search engines to watch movies and serials for free amounted to almost 10 billion per year.“Thus, on average, based on the total Internet audience of the past year in Russia (about 90 million), for each user an average of about 110 views of pirated copies of motion pictures. The increase in the theft of content from the screens of cinemas has led to the fact that the number of pirated copies films totaled 211 units in 2017, more than six times the figure a year earlier (33 “screens”), while in the first 9 months of 2018 the number of published “screens” has already exceeded 280. Thus, nearly ach second motion picture, which appeared in 2018 in rent, has been copied by pirates and posted on the network, “- follows from the release of the company.

Pirates for the rapid delivery of movies and TV shows to users, simplifying the scheme of monetization and auto-filling of the site with illegal video content are increasingly using CDN (Content Distribution Network) technology, which, as a rule, unites many servers around the world and speeds up the transfer of content to the end user .

“If we talk about a large distribution network of films and serials in Russia, the total number of files in the database of only one pirated CDN service exceeds 300 thousand, which occupies more than 5 PB of server space, while the cost of monthly maintenance of such infrastructure is about 100 thousand dollars” , – the words of Andrey Busargin, head of the department for innovation protection of the brand and intellectual property of Group-IB, are presented in the message.

Anti-piracy experts in the company calculated that the total amount of video piracy traffic for the year 2017 increased by 12% and continues to grow. Commercials on pirate resources are also placed through CDN-providers and are “pasted” into the video sequence. The main advertisers of pirated films and serials are online casinos and gaming sites. “The average earnings of pirates for 1000 hits is $ 3. Thus, the average monthly income from large pirate sites can reach $ 10 thousand.It is curious that the creation of a pirated resource itself takes about $ 240, which means that its payback begins with 80,000 views video on the portal, “experts note.
