Pirates of the 2010 Oscars

| 2/8/2010 4:07:54 PM

DVD PirateThe nominees for the 2010 Oscars were recently announced, and DVD pirates have already managed to release most of the films to the web. In an annual analysis of how many Oscar-nominated films are illegally available on the internet, Andy Baio of Waxy found that piracy was not as rampant as it has been in years past. With a month remaining before the awards ceremony, fewer screeners and DVD-quality files have been leaked, and camcorder and telesync releases have dropped, too. Baio doesn’t offer a definitive answer to why piracy is dropping, but will continue to update his analysis as more of the films are leaked.
