ABSTRACT
The article focuses on a report by the British Film Council, which states that the British piracy market will be worth £1 billion within three years, threatening the future of the local industry. Report, compiled by a special task force, backs up figures from the Federation Against Copyright Theft (Fact), according to which, there were 1.4 million seizures of pirated DVDs in the first half of 2004. That's up 207 per cent from the first half of 2003 and a staggering 1,768 per cent rise from the same period in 2002. By European standards, the problem is acute, and only Austria and Germany experienced a higher rate of piracy in 2003.
