EU Piracy estimates: Just how inaccurate?

Piracy 2

superapecommando (1667063) writes "Last week I wrote about a report from the US Government Accountability Office (GAO) that examined the reliability of recorded music industry research papers seeking to estimate the loss from “piracy” in the digital field, and found all of them seriously wanting.
As far as I know, no similar analysis has been carried out for European reports. So I thought it might be interesting to look at one particular European report on the subject — not least because I've heard that its findings influenced some of the MPs voting on the Digital Economy Act."

Start raising the right demands, get enough momentum going behind them and an organisation will come forward to take responsbility and try and coordinate the other side's approach. Stay silent and you get walked all over.
