Piracy websites attract billions of visits

A study by anti-fraud firm MarkMonitor has offered a snapshot into the changing nature of online piracy.

It monitored illegal traffic levels on 43 file-sharing sites and found that they generated more than 53 billion visits per year.

The top three - RapidShare.com, Megavideo.com and Megaupload.com - generated more than 21 billion visits.

The story is too old to be commented.

And what is this doing on N4G exactly? We get it, piracy is now an issue since the PS3 hacked.

I'll tell you what you can do.. Just leave it. It is completely out of anyone's hands.

You can't do shit, Let the hackers have their fun.. lol, you've got no choice anyway.

firstly those sites are not piracy only, people upload all kinds of crap, at least on rapidshare and megaupload as far as I know, secondly and more importantly, why is this on N4G?
