How does it compare with the TOP legal list? and how could they ever monitor the illegal list?

Notice Top Gear in TOP 3 TV shows, pretty incredible

Oops. I think I need to change the title of this thread.

Anyway, here is an excerpt explaining how it was done:

Quote:
To find the most-traded files in the world of P2P, Wired News turned to BigChampagne Online Media Measurement, a Los Angeles-based firm which tracks media-consumption trends across all digital channels -- legal and otherwise.

For this study, we asked BigChampagne to concentrate solely on P2P traffic. The firm then compiled a set of top 10 lists using data from all the major file-trading protocols and networks -- BitTorrent, Gnutella and eDonkey included. Private BitTorrent trackers and invite-only trading communities were excluded from the study, as were private LAN-based sharing networks. But what remains, we feel, is an accurate picture of what the file-trading world at large got excited about over the past 12 months.

they exclude lan parties, ftp and newsgroups, so they only touch a the tip of the iceberg, also explains the rather "pop-culture" like TOP lists

I am quite sure these pirated songs are not from China for a change; the Western World has it's own priracy that is quite acceptable in certain mindsets.
