Online Piracy in Norway

In 2008, an estimated 1.2 billion music songs were digitally pirated on the Internet in Norway. In 2012, the number of pirated musics files dropped to 210 million.

260 million movies were illegally downloaded in Norway in 2008. By 2012, the number of pirated movies downloaded online fell to 120 million.

Both declines in the number of pirated digital files were attributed to streaming Internet services such as Spotify and Netflix.
