Top 10 pirated film list gets a revamp

/ 4 years ago

The anti-piracy scene has fallen off the news agenda a bit recently with only Kim Dotcom and Megaupload managing to sustain media attention. However, Piracy is still an ever present problem and we want to take a more light-hearted look at it by seeing what people spend their hard earned…bandwidth on downloading.

Its been well over a month since we last updated the Top 10 pirated film list. Last month this was what the top 10 looked like:

Now a month later and this is what the new top 10 looks like.

There are some quite dramatic changes but the Dictator clings to a top 10 spot with the Avengers. There are a couple of new entries at 4 and 5 but its not surprising to see Resident Evil: Retribution and Men In Black 3 dominate the charts.

It is always fascinating to see what people actually go and download when they do not have to worry about the cost of purchasing the film. Although the top 10 pirated films tends to reflect the films with the biggest advertising budget, more than it does the best films, as shown by the total lack of correlation between film rating and chart position.
