Movie Studios Accused of Engaging in Illegal Filesharing

The publication said its ScanEye revealed that "BitTorrent piracy is rampant in Hollywood."

According to the data, it appears that Paramount employees had a preference for movies such as Battle Force, Happy Feet and The Hunger games, while Warner Bros. showed interest in adult entertainment, Sony employees on BitTorrent tend to sharing games and TV shows such as Top Chef.

TorrentFreak did not reveal details of its search and the exact volume of illegal move file sharing. Judging by the article the conclusion that piracy is "rampant" may be a bit of an exaggeration, but it is certainly embarrassing for the movie industry that it BitTorrent filesharing apparently takes place under the publishers' own IPs.
