Digital piracy in Spain

In the first half of 2011, over 77 percent of digital content consumed in Spain was pirated, according to the Coalition of Creators and Industries of Content. The piracy caused the movie, music, book and video game industries to lose $7.2 Billion (5.2 Billion Euros) in earnings.

74 percent of all digital movies watched in Spain in the first half of 2011 were obtained from services other then the legitimate owner of the movie.
