We all know that piracy is a huge problem in the US, but not everybody realizes just how big the problem has become. That’s the issue at hand that CEG TEK International is trying to solve. Their mission is to track copyright infringement, and try to prevent it overall by providing the information and going after the people actually stealing the content outright.
Here’s a few of the interesting statistics that they found. The top holiday movie that was stolen in 2013 was Home Alone, which was accessed more than 20,000 times. That’s only what CEG TEK International could actually track as well, the real numbers could be much higher.
Following close behind there’s Arthur Christmas which was pirated more than 16,000 times, and A Christmas Carol which was also downloaded more than 16,000 times. Followed by How The Grinch Stole Christmas and Love Actually which were each pirated more than 15,000 times.
Clearly it identifies that there’s a little bit of a problem with people downloading movies instead of getting them legitimately. Despite the prevalence of streaming services, and cable rental options on demand, a lot of people are still turning to stealing and sharing content illegally.
That’s why CEG TEK International developed their automated system for tracking when these developments occur. They have a unique software platform that enables them to track when and how movies are being pirated online. Which gives them the edge in the fight to take content back from the people who have stolen it in the first place.
