Measuring ROI in Content Protection: How valuable is anti-piracy?

The content protection industry has long struggled with proving value of its services.
In short, it is challenging to draw a clear line between content removal and revenue
loss prevention.

MUSO's approach to content protection film is grounded in the company’s industry leading database of piracy sites, and our understanding of the audiences that visit them. It is underpinned by the fact that not all illegally hosted content is equally popular meaning some content removals are more impactful than others.

To better measure the impact of anti-piracy, MUSO have developed three metrics.

  • Removal impact score
  • Visits disrupted
  • Users displaced

In our white paper: Measuring ROI in Content Protection, we reveal how these three metrics can answer the question: How valuable is anti-piracy?
