Monetising Piracy: How to turn punishment into an opportunity

Online, it’s more and more difficult to recognise when your favourite video content is coming from non-legitimate sources.  Pirate websites and boxes sold at retail often have high production values and consumers adopt them without question.  Piracy detection is also becoming increasingly sophisticated, a recent twist being the use of AI and analytics to recognize password sharing and out-of-profile “end user” activity.  But if the content you’re distributing happens to be detected outside its target market, should you be so quick to shut it down?  While piracy is a huge and increasing risk, the industry has been so focused on shutting down and penalizing the pirates that many have overlooked new opportunities that video piracy can create.  Perhaps the content owner – not to mention your advertisers – might welcome some monitored piracy, to see whether they have new marketing opportunities with consumers that they had not previously recognized.
