A newly updated study from the Copenhagen Business School and Munich School of Management suggests that digital piracy actually increases box office revenue for small and mid-range movies.
For years we’ve heard that digital piracy decreases film revenue, and there are studies purporting to show exactly that.

Instead, they studied how a sharp decrease in piracy affected blockbusters, mid-range movies and small-budget films separately.
