The Avengers Tops Torrent Download Charts Hits #1 Spot For Films
It wasn't that long ago that we reported on Demonoid getting shut down for good. It would seem that while the popular torrent site may be gone it hasn't had that much of an impact when it comes to illegal torrenting. As it stands The Avengers has become the most torrented movie currently followed by The Hunger Games and The Dictator in second and third respectively. A few terrible movies make the list as well including Freelancers and The Babymakers, both of which come in under 4.0 on IMDb. Still its interesting to note that The Avengers was seen by many via pre-release CAMrips one of which managed to garner quiet a few views on youtube before being pulled. Yet it had next to no impact on said film breaking box office records, but with Blu-ray and DVD rips now toping the download charts it remains to be seen how Disney and Marvel will react as instead of it being a form of viral marketing its now eating into profit margins. How long The Avengers will remain in the number one spot remains to be seen but if it's record setting box office numbers are any indication it will probably remain high on the list for sometime. Regardless, copyright infringement seems to be a hot ticket issue this year with SOPA, PIPA, ACTA, along with both Megauload and Demonoid getting shutdown among others. It seems all that money spent trying to KO piracy hasn't really done anything to stop it and the download counter just keeps rising.
