According to a recent consumer survey by Irdeto, some 87 percent of Russian consumers stated that producing or sharing pirated video content is not illegal and some 66 percent in fact believed that streaming or downloading pirated content is legal.
However, unauthorised copying, broadcast, distribution or reproduction of copyrighted content, including audio-visual content, is unlawful in Russia as it is in most countries around the world. Some 57 percent of those who were surveyed stated that they actively watch pirated content, with some 22 percent watching it once a week.
