Much of his focus was, however, on concerns over the ongoing proliferation of illegal film sites. "A vital step for the technology sector is to signpost legitimate search options far more clearly and to delete links to sites that promote illegally sourced content," said Puttnam./pp/ppThe new yearbook reveals that the UK delivers 7% of the world's cinema box-office take and a fifth of the European box office, despite representing just 1% of the global population. A total of 580 films were released in the UK over the past 12 months, with distributors investing more than £330m to help promote them. Films in 3D continue to be hugely popular at the UK box office, accounting for 21% of total gross./pp/pp"The UK still needs to do everything it can to ensure that we have a state aid regime that continues to support British film culture and the audiences for British film, just as it has done over the last few years," said Puttnam, who produced the Oscar-winning film Chariots of Fire. "The key to the digital future – or rather, the present – lies in forging new models, creating and sustaining new relationships with audiences."/pp/ppPuttnam also showed audience members a montage of clips highlighting British involvement in upcoming films, including Ridley Scott's a href="http://www.youtube.com/user/Prometheus6812" title=""Prometheus/a, Joe Wright's a href="http://www.guardian.co.uk/film/2011/sep/09/keira-knightley-joe-wright-anna-karenina" title=""Anna Karenina/a and JRR Tolkien fantasy adaptation a href="http://www.guardian.co.uk/film/movie/125622/hobbit" title=""The Hobbit/a./pdiv class="related" style="float: left; margin-right: 10px; margin-bottom: 10px;"ullia href="http://www.guardian.co.uk/film/piracy"Piracy/a/li/ul/divdiv class="author"a href="http://www.guardian.co.uk/profile/benchild"Ben Child/a/divbr/div class="terms"a href="http://www.guardian.co.uk"guardian.co.uk/a copy; 2012 Guardian News and Media Limited or its affiliated companies.
