Talk about your dubious honors. The series finale of Lost is now the most torrented file in all of history. TorrentFreak reports that, in less than a day, close to a million people downloaded the last two episodes. More than 100,000 seeders shared each single torrent at a time. Most of these downloads were from foreign Lost fans, since the final episodes have yet to air in many places overseas.
TorrentFreak expects a total of four to five million downloads of the final two episodes by the end of the week. Hey Hollywood, listen up; you are losing out on millions of potential customers because your shows are not available legally in many other countries until months after they first air. You can't expect people to wait that long. Create some legal options, and most of these torrenters will probably take them.
