Robin Williams Movie Downloads Have Increased Since His Death

Robin Williams' death has been felt worldwide, with countless tributes dedicated to the beloved actor and comedic legend. On Amazon, Williams' movies have jumped to the top of the best-sellers; six spots atop the list are movies starring Williams, with "Dead Poets Society" ranking No. 1. The same spike can be seen on the illegal side, as Pirate Bay downloads have increased by 49,000 percent, reports TorrentFreak.

On the Pirate Bay's top 100 torrents of the last 48 hours, a "RIP Robin Williams Movie Collection" torrent, featuring 42 films, is in the top 10, currently in eighth place, while "World's Greatest Dad," "One Hour Photo, "Hook," "Bicentennial Man," "Dead Poets Society," "Jack" and "Good Morning Vietnam" are also in the top 100. A "Mork & Mindy" Season 2 is also among the most popular downloads on the Pirate Bay.

On Kickass Torrents, several of Williams' movies, including the 1997 hit "Good Will Hunting," as well as his name, appear among the most popular searches, alongside newer fare such as "Guardians of the Galaxy" and "Transformers: Age of Extinction."

The Pirate Bay And Other Torrent Sites Now Blocked In Austria

It looks like major torrent Web sites will be blocked in Austria. Five local ISPs have been instructed by IFPI (music industry outfit) to block Web sites like The Pirate Bay, H33t, and 1337x. The instruction is based on the ruling passed by a European Court of Justice.

According to TorrentFreak, a legal battle involving a local ISP, an anti-piracy group from Austria, a European Court of Justice and the Supreme Court ended this July.

The courts ended the case by stating that internet service providers can be forced to block access to Web sites that are into copyright infringement.

Now, IFPI wants the major ISPs in Austria to block various torrent Web sites. The group has written a letter to five ISPs and they have been given two weeks to block access to the following Web sites.

Download The Pirate Bay Torrents On Your Phone

The Pirate Bay, the notorious file-sharing website that has managed to evade international copyright enforcers for more than 10 years, has unveiled a new service that makes it possible for users to download torrent files directly to their phones or other mobile devices.

Dubbed “The Mobile Bay,” the new website is an update for users who have tried to download movies, music, software, video games and other media content on their phones only to have trouble accessing the site, which was designed for desktops. Exact numbers are hard to come by but it’s believed the Pirate Bay attracts millions of page views every day by giving visitors the ability to illegally download copyrighted content quickly and easily.

People still have the option of using the old version, but the Pirate Bay administrators told TorrentFreak “The Mobile Bay,” which was rolled out last week, is highly recommended.

Austrian ISPs Told To Block The Pirate Bay

Austrian ISPs have been told they have just days to block not only The Pirate Bay but also Movie4K, one of the world's most famous streaming sites. The blockades, which were demanded by Hollywood-backed anti-piracy outfit VAP, are supported by recent decisions from both the Supreme Court in Austria and the European Court of Justice., one of Germany’s largest illegal streaming portals, was shut down during 2011 following the largest law enforcement action against of its type in Europe. But even with the site long gone the disruption it caused is about to affect The Pirate Bay and two other major sites.

Just a month before was dismantled in June 2011, Austrian ISP ‘UPC’ was served with a preliminary injunction ordering it to block subscriber access to the site. Verein für Anti-Piraterie der österreichischen Film und Videobranche (VAP) – the anti-piracy association of the Austrian film and video industry – had been on the warpath since 2010 and had finally got their way after UPC refused to comply voluntarily.

The Pirate Bay Doubles In Traffic

Despite blocks in dozens of countries, tight Internet service provider restrictions and the widespread availability of affordable streaming services, notorious file-sharing service the Pirate Bay claims to have doubled its traffic over the past three years.

The site, which was blocked most recently in Singapore and Argentina, remains live in the United States (the source of most visitors), Southeast Asia and Europe. Exact numbers are impossible to verify, but Pirate Bay administrators told TorrentFreak the site’s traffic is twice what it was in 2011, with TorrentFreak noting that “monthly page views are believed to run into the hundreds of millions.”

The Pirate Bay Traffic Remains Strong Despite ISP Blocks

In recent years the entertainment industries have pushed hard to get The Pirate Bay blocked in various countries. Despite these efforts the notorious torrent site has managed to double its visitors. The United States remains the most popular traffic source while roughly 9% of all users access the site through a proxy.

The Pirate Bay is without doubt one of the most censored websites on the Internet.

Courts all around the world have ordered Internet providers to block subscriber access to the torrent site and this list continues to expand.

Denmark was one of the first countries to block The Pirate Bay, but the biggest impact came in 2012 when major ISPs in the UK and the Netherlands were ordered to deny their users access to the site.

The entertainment industries have characterized these blockades as a major victory and claim they’re an efficient tool to deter piracy. The question that has thus far remained unanswered, however, is how Pirate Bay’s traffic numbers are being affected. Is the site on the verge of collapsing?

As it turns out, The Pirate Bay hasn’t stopped growing at all. On the contrary, The Pirate Bay informs TorrentFreak that visitor numbers have doubled since 2011.

The graph below shows the growth in unique visitors and pageviews over the past three years. The Pirate Bay chose not to share actual visitor numbers, but monthly pageviews are believed to run into the hundreds of millions.

The Pirate Bay Requests Support For Imprisoned Founders

The Pirate Bay has updated its familiar home page logo with a banner asking people to support two of the site's founders who are currently in prison. The site lists the addresses of Gottfrid Svartholm and Peter Sunde and encourages visitors to send letters, books, and vegan candy.

Pretty much every weekend The Pirate Bay replaces its logo to plug a band, game developer or filmmaker. This is part of the Promo Bay initiative through which TPB supports independent artists.

At the start of this weekend the torrent site decided to feature something a little more personal. The site currently displays a banner asking visitors to send their support to two of the site’s original founders.

Gottfrid Svartholm and Peter Sunde are both in prison at the moment and could use an uplifting note or two, the message suggests.

“Show your support by sending them some encouraging mail! Gottfrid is only allowed to receive letters while Peter gladly received books, letter and vegan candy,” the TPB team writes.
