Fact of the Day: Movie Piracy

The three countries in which the movie piracy losses to U.S. studios were highest were not East Asian countries, and two of them were not developing countries: Mexico, the United Kingdom, and France accounted for over $1.2 billion in lost revenues, or 25% of the non-U.S. total – and slightly less than the U.S. total of $1.3 billion.

Interesting. Over 2 billion. That's a lot of piracy. How do they explain it?

The post mentioned that other countries had high numbers as well, Hungary being one of them. Tyler Cowen had a piece on it today.
