Do people still go to cinemas to watch movies? With the availability of sites where you could watch or download movies like torrent and other peer to peer or P2P sites, I could just get my serving of movies at home. There are actually several Internet users that use P2P file-sharing services to download movies, aside from music, applications, etc. In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if a survey would release a report claiming that 95% percent of all these downloads were illegal.
What does this tell us? Besides solidifying the fact that people love downloading free entertainment. It exemplifies that P2P has become heavily engrained into the fabric of the Internet. But as we’ve seen, there are crackdowns on digital lockers that allow media sharing, shutting down certain sites and targeting the other remaining sites. However, this isn’t the first time downloaders have witnessed their favorite file-sharing portals bite the dust.
