Aus Copyright Industry Blames Piracy, Parity For Decline
« on: August 16, 2012, 03:04:31 pm »
A new report by PricewaterhouseCoopers, commissioned by the Australian Copyright Council, shows that the value added to the Australian economy by copyright industries has declined over the past three years from AU$100.2 billion to AU$93.2 billion.

Under World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO) methodology, the core copyright industry is said to include newspapers, book publishers, musicians, film writers, actors, directors, video rentals, sales, broadcasters, cable television, photography, programming, development, wholesale and retail sale of software, artists and advertising, but the report also includes interdependent industries, such as hardware manufacturers.

The Australian copyright industry's contribution to the economy peaked in 2008, when it provided AU$100.2 billion to Australia's gross domestic product (GDP). That figure has since declined to AU$93.2 billion in 2011, although this was a slight rise from the AU$92.6 billion achieved back in 2010.

As a percentage of total Australian GDP, however, the contribution continued to decline to 6.6 per cent, from a peak in 2000 of 9 per cent. Comparatively, in the United States, copyright industries made up 11.1 per cent of GDP in 2011.

But wasn't 2008 the year of the GFC, which caused most of us to have less discretionary spending ability?

'Copyright Industry" would simply have lost sales due to that fall in Discretionary Income, but i guess you can demonstrate anything with enough stats

lets see: Newspapers? Sales Down; reason?  Book Publishers? Sales Down; Reason (Think Kindle et-al Musicians? Sales (I suggest) flat; Reason? The market is sick of discs full of junk they dont want.  Film Writers, Actors, Directors (as a group) Sales Flat; reason? there's a plethora, including GFC effect, but look at some of the junk too. Video Rentals? Sales Down; reason? Who still does that? Broadcasters? Sales Down; Reason? Too busy fighting among themselves for 'Olympic Contracts' and other frippery. Cable TV, Ditto and there's JUNK! Photography? Sales Down; Reason? one word: Digital. etc etc etc. 

Are they listening to the market?

I suspect not

now this: the 'industry's' contribution to GDP 9% down to 6.6% means we spend less time on our entertained bums than the americans at 11.1%? Must be all that evil outdoors and beach lifestyle we enjoy

perhaps they should embrace digital more so that they can sell us the overpriced movies to watch on our overpriced iPads while we camp or laze on the beach...

Ermmm, No!
