New technologies have made it more difficult to assess how much enforcement has affected piracy, said Joe Fleischer, chief marketing officer for tracking firm BigChampagne Media Measurement.
File-hosting services such as RapidShare store infringing content on distant servers, meaning uploaders’ identities are difficult to track. Web sites that share links to those files are searchable through Google.
“It’s a much more complicated battle than it was five years ago, because so many new modes of infringement are emerging,” Fleischer said.
