Most popular illegal content: torrent tracker rating

    One of the largest torrent sites ExtraTorrents , operating since 2006, recently in the framework of the competition presented the twenty most downloaded files according to its statistics. At the contest with a prize draw it was necessary to guess which positions would be included in this rating. The winner guessed only seven positions, which is not surprising, since the list looks quite unexpected. For example, the first three places are taken by music (more precisely, rap and hip-hop). It is also worth noting the presence on the 5th place of The Expendables 3 - a film that leaked into the network 3 weeks before going to the movies, in connection with which Stallone was not slow to accuse the pirates of his failure at the box office.

    The list shows that compiling a rating of all times without taking into account the fact that the number of users is growing every year is incorrect. For serious research, it is necessary to give weight to the number of downloads depending on the year. At least ExtraTorrents, by their admission, was not too lazy to combine downloads of several variants of the same content into one.

    The first three places are occupied by songs and dances of black representatives of American culture (and indeed, the vast majority of the items belong to the United States). Next, along with music albums and compositions are loud Hollywood blockbusters of recent years. From the melodic music only eccentric French electronic engineers Daft Punk got to the top, and Kick became interesting guests of the list(“Kick”) - a Bollywood blockbuster (the masterpieces of Bollywood in recent years have almost surpassed Hollywood masterpieces in terms of the scale of action and special effects - take at least the film “ Robot ” in 2010; and what fun and cheerful they are, it's just a song), and porn a parody of the adaptation of the Avengers comics (in which, I believe, the Avengers discover new ways to punish villains).
