Default Most pirated flicks are those Hollywood will not sell

It is starting to look like Hollywood has only itself to blame for pirated movies.

The top ten pirated movies are mostly those which Big Content, for reasons known only to itself, has refused to release legally but are not available at the movie theatres any more.

A new website called tracks the most pirated movies of the week links to Can I Stream It? to show whether file sharers could have bought or rented the movie online instead.

PiracyData's chart shows, four out of the 10 most pirated movies cannot be bought legally online. Out of the remaining six movies, three are available for full-priced purchase, but not for rent. None of the top 10 movies can be watched through subscription streaming services such as Netflix.

So, in other words, viewers are pushed toward piracy when they can't buy or at least rent the movies they want to watch.

Each movie on the list came out this year, but is no longer showing in major theatres. With the exception of three films, most of these movies are now in an awkward stage where you can buy them on DVD, but cannot rent them online.
