So, more pirated content on Youtube?
There definitely is on web streaming sites.

It’s probably the case that increased use of onion routers and VPNs has also affected the statistics as file sharing is no longer as obvious. :wink:

This was my thought also. IMO, the more the RIAA and MPAA tighten their grip the more illegal downloads will slip through their fingers.

I wished that the I2P anonymizer plugins worked better… they do compromise speed for anonymity in my experience. However, if your going to download whole catalogues of movies & music, it’s well worth the extra security.
