Game Of Thrones On Track To Be Most Pirated Show Of 2012; Pirates Still Asking HBO For Legitimate Options | Techdirt. This doesn't surprise me in the slightest. Game of Thrones is one of the shows I watch consistently legitimately, because I happen to live in a house whose owners have HBO, OnDemand and a DVR.
Now jilocasin points us to the news that Game of Thrones is well on track to be the most torrented show of 2012, and nobody can deny that HBO's foolish subscriber-only distribution is a primary reason for that.
This is ridiculous. There's a point at which art distributors shouldn't be allowed to refuse people access to their media, and HBO's treatment of Game of Thrones is a clear example.
