Online movie piracy dropped in 2011 compared with the previous year, with the most torrented movie of the year–Fast Five, the fifth in the The Fast and The Furious series–only shared nine million times, compared with 2010’s top pirated flick, Avatar, downloaded 16 million times. According to TorrentFreak, the downward trend continues throughout the other most-shared movies, all of which were downloaded in smaller numbers than their 2010 counterparts. Maybe 2011 was the year in which audiences realized that some movies should be seen in theaters–or perhaps it was the year where the movies were so bad that people wouldn’t even watch them for free.
