Internet piracy was one of 2014's most talked-about subjects, with the entertainment sector—and Hollywood in particular— being a major victim.
"The Wolf of Wall Street", Martin Scorsese's study of stockbroker excess, was named 2014's most illegally downloaded film in a top-20 list by Excipio, which detects online copyright infringements. It found that more than 30 million people individually downloaded the film illegally using Torrent software this year.
Disney's 2013 Christmas success "Frozen" narrowly missed the top spot for most pirated video in 2014, with 29.9 million Torrent users downloading the film this year. The film has grossed $1.27 billion worldwide since its release in 2013, according to Box Office Mojo, which tracks the movie industry.
As Excipio's data was collated from January 1 to December 23 2014, 2013 movies came out as more popular for pirating than those released this year.
Half of the top 20 most-pirated films of this year came out in theatres during 2013. Four 2013 movies were in this year's top five: "The Wolf of Wall Street", "Frozen", "Gravity" and "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug."
Warner Brothers suffered the most, with five of the top pirated films coming from its studio: "Gravity", "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug", "300: Rise of an Empire", "Godzilla" and "Edge of Tomorrow".
Sony Picture's movie "The Interview" has earned more than $15 million in online sales and is the company's most legally downloaded movie ever, Reuters reported on Sunday.
The movie was also downloaded illegally more than 1.5 million times from a torrent in its first two days of opening, according to the TorrentFreak news site.
More than eight million people illegally downloaded the "Game of Thrones" finale this year via BitTorrent. This made the HBO epic the most pirated television show for a third year running, according to a new list compiled by TorrentFreak.
Other TV favorites included "The Walking Dead", with 4.8 million illegal downloads for its top episode, "The Big Bang Theory" with 3.9 million downloads, "How I Met Your Mother" with 3.5 million and "Gotham" with 3.2 million.
In 2011, over 200,000 BitTorrent customers had been sued by the U.S. court over illegal file sharing and the sharing of copyrighted files within just eighteen months, according to TorrentFreak.
