The Swedish music industry had sales of more than SEK 12 billion and recorded approximately SEK 2.7 billion in export revenues in 2019. In addition to the music industry, copyright is important for other industries such as computer games, film and news media. According to a survey, there are a total of 353,000 jobs in companies that are intensely dependent on copyright. This is stated by the member organization STIM in the report "The role of copyright for creation".
Catharina Ekdahl, a lawyer at PRV, has seen how the view of copyright has changed in recent years: “This report explains in a good way the great importance of copyright for society as a whole and why the rights of individual creators need to be protected. In our surveys, we at PRV have seen that more and more people realize the importance of respecting copyright. Our task as an authority is to continue to increase knowledge about copyright so that more people choose legal sites when they want to take part in protected works online ”.
