    Default Hollywood Studios Caught Pirating Movies on BitTorrent



    BitTorrent is used by millions of people every day, including people who work at major Hollywood studios. Those who are said to be suffering the most from online piracy are no stranger to sharing copyrighted files themselves. New data reveals that employees at Paramount Pictures, Warner Bros., Disney, Sony Pictures and 20th Century Fox are openly pirating movies, games and other forms of entertainment while at work.

    While Christmas is a time for sharing there are certain files that some people believe should be excluded from that experience.

    For more than a decade the MPAA has waged war against thieves who dare to share their movies online. Online piracy is costing the creative industries billions of dollars in lost revenue, they say.

    The Hollywood group is therefore one of the main facilitators of the six strikes copyright alerts plan that will begin in the coming year. The main goal of this plan is to educate members of the public about piracy, and point them to legal sources.

    However, new data uncovered by TorrentFreak shows that the MPAA might want to start in-house, as plenty of copyrighted material is being shared by employees of major Hollywood studios. With help from BitTorrent monitoring company Scaneye Torrentfreak found that BitTorrent piracy is rampant in Hollywood.

    Lets take a look at some of the files these Hollywood studios are sharing, starting with Paramount Pictures. Keep in mind that what Torrentfreak show here is just a small fraction of the files that are actually being shared. Its the tip of the iceberg.











    The above is no surprise of course. Last year the now defunct website YouHaveDownloaded already revealed that BitTorrent is used at virtually every company.

    That said, it never hurts to point out that Hollywood isnt without sin when it comes to piracy. The MPAA and others lobby very hard for anti-piracy measures, but cant even stop piracy in the offices of their own member studios.
