p2pnet has a list of the top 10 illegal movie downloads.
The number one movie on the list, War of the Worlds, was downloaded 781,960 times. No wonder the movie studios are freaking out about copy protection and piracy.
The data was compiled by research firm BigChampagne. From the BigChampagne FAQ:
Does BigChampagne collect and report information about unauthorized or illegal P2P file sharing?
Yes. Like it or not, the vast majority of online entertainment media is now acquired for free on P2P file sharing networks, and BigChampagne is committed to providing information about consumption, not just sales.
