Malaysia No. 2 In Southeast Asia For Content Piracy – Irdeto By Massita Ahmad

SINGAPORE, May 31 (Bernama) — Malaysia recorded the second largest share of content piracy in Southeast Asia at 17 per cent for the first quarter of 2016, second to the Philippines, says Irdeto, a world leader in digital platform security.

“Content piracy ignores traditional geographical divides and boundaries. Even in countries with relatively strong legislation, content providers are still faced with piracy issues,” Irdeto Vice President & General Manager, South East Asia, Jerry Park told Bernama in an email interview.

Park said nascent markets like Malaysia usually have high levels of piracy, which commonly occurs in the form of digital video discs (DVDs), using virtual private networks (VPNs) and peer-to-peer (P2P) networks.
