Rightscorp estimated that music consumption on file sharing networks grew from 2.7 billion digital songs in 2010 to 8.3 billion digital songs shared in 2013. Rightscorp also estimated that approximately 74 per cent of digital music was consumed on file sharing networks in 2013 without compensation to the copyright owners. In addition, the presentation forecast a 40 per cent increase in peer-to-peer file sharing by 2018, which includes 11.9 billion songs and over 3 billion movies illegally downloaded. Rightscorp’s estimates were based on source data from Cisco, Envisional, and Netnames.
