'Avatar' beats "Hurt Locker" in piracy stakes

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - “Avatar” might have tied “The Hurt Locker” for most Oscar nominations last week (with nine apiece), but the sci-fi epic is winning in at least one category: The film once again was the most-pirated movie on the Internet last week, thanks to a DVD screener that leaked onto file-sharing networks.

Oscar buzz also seems to have compelled pirates to check out “Locker,” which jumped to the fourth most-pirated film last week. Here’s the entire Top 10 list of most-pirated movies on BitTorrent, according to TorrentFreak:

1) Avatar

2) Sherlock Holmes

3) Daybreakers

4) The Hurt Locker

5) Zombieland

6) The Men Who Stare at Goats

7) Couples Retreat

8) Nine

9) The Book of Eli

10) The Informant
