Avatar: The King of Illegal Downloads

Though The Hurt Locker has been gaining some ground on Golden Globe winner Avatar with recent PGA and DGA wins, TorrentFreak’s list of last week's top ten most pirated films reveals Avatar has a firm grasp on the top spot as the most-pirated film, with The Hurt Locker trailing at #4. While there are definitely a lot of questions to ask here (for one thing: who are these people who still haven't seen Avatar?!), perhaps the most puzzling finding is that there are (apparently a lot of) people who actually went through the effort to illegally download Couples Retreat.

Forget Oscars; 'Avatar' beats 'Hurt Locker' for most-pirated crown [THR, Esq.]
