Last year, the entertainment cartels claimed counterfeiting and file sharing were prime causes of deteriorating world economies. But, quoting from the Havocscope global index of illicit markets, movie and music piracy were way down the list at 16th and 20th respectively, said p2pnet. Despite these earlier spurious claims, things have worsened dramatically. Right? Wrong. Havocscope says movies have moved up only four notches to the 12th position, and music is now two steps further down, not up, at position # 22."
