- The Coalition of Creators and Content Industries and LaLiga have published a new study on piracy and young people.
- 10 years of age, 7% of the students surveyed considered that piracy is not something negative, this percentage increases to 18% at the age of 13.
- 5.7% of those under the age of 10 to 13 years, thinks the piracy on the internet “not harming anyone”; 61.9% believe that it harms “to many people”.
tolerance piracy is a phenomenon on the rise from adolescence as 10 to 12 years of age 82% of the children considered negative piracy, but at the age of 13 it looks like only the 66% (two out of every three), according to the Coalition of Creators and Content Industries and LaLiga.
So it appears from this study presented by both organizations, a field that has been developed to 108 colleges and institutes of various autonomous communities among school children (a total of 15,000) who are studying 5th and 6th of Primary and 1st and 2nd of ESO, aged between 10 and 13 years.
As reflected in the document also, half of the students of 10 to 13 years is not able to differentiate with ease the legal content of the pirated goods, 33% is able to tell them apart “only sometimes,” and the games, and especially music, are “far and away” the content can be downloaded illegally on the internet.
Likewise, if 10 years 7% of the students surveyed considered that piracy is not something negative, this percentage increases to 18% at the age of 13, so that the tolerance towards piracy “increases an eye-catching way”, as has been said Carlota Navarrete, director of the Coalition, during this event that has brought together representatives of the Popular Party, Citizens, Psoe and we Can.
in Addition, as the report adds, 5.7% of those under the age of 10 to 13 years, thinks the piracy on the internet “not harming anyone”; 61.9% believe that it harms “to many people” and a 31.1% think that hurts “some people”.
For Marta Rivera de la Cruz, secretary of Culture of Citizens, this kind of campaigns “can help change” the perception that children have about piracy. But the president of the Culture Commission of the Congress of Deputies has announced that his party has reached an “additional commitment” of 600,000 euros with the PP for the extension of the template of section II of the Commission on Intellectual Property within the negotiation of the General Budgets of the State.
“we Calculated that with that money you can increase in about four or five people, because it would be both for staff and for media materials and a few wage supplements curious that do not exist in the section II, and itself in other of the Management that make employees last very little, because they seek a destination that is better paid,” he qualified.
Iban Garcia del Blanco, secretary of Culture and Sport of the Socialist Party, has expressed the need for “recover” the subject “Education for Citizenship” with the goal to include the teaching of respect for the intellectual property and thus to “become better” citizens.
For his part, Emilio del Rio, secretary-sectoral Culture for the Partido Popular, has highlighted the “progress” that has been in the last years in the political discourse about this subject: “Now it is said that pirating is stealing.”
Eduardo Maura, the responsible state Culture of United we Can, has put the focus on the fact that “many young people” does not consider the piracy as “a moral problem”, but a “technological problem”; and has stated that it is not in favour of the option “punitive” in the fight against piracy.
Among the objectives of this campaign, according to have concluded the Coalition and LaLiga, it is the promoting the “essential respect” to the intellectual property rights by the knowledge.
