Hollywood Complains About Piracy While Employees Engage In It

While Hollywood talks about the billions of dollars in lost revenue it loses from piracy it seems that its employees have a different philosophy. According to this TorrentFreak report – using data from BitTorrent monitoring company Scaneye – employees of major studios love downloading movies, TV shows and video games.

Static IP-addresses registered to Paramount Pictures downloaded the Lionsgate film The Hunger Games, Happy Feet (Warner Bros. film), and an episode of Sons of Anarchy (FX). IP's from Warner Bros. downloaded The Expendables 2, Black Mesa, and episodes on NCIS. Sony Pictures employees are sharing games, TV-shows and movies at work including 20th Century Fox’s Ice Age: Continental Drift, and an episode of Top Chef. 20th Century Fox employees are sharing three titles: the independent film Jeff, Who Lives at Home, an episode of 90210 and the Ubisoft game Hollywood Squares. Disney employees are sharing Fast and Furious 6, and the TV-shows Person of Interest and Downton Abbey.
