What if I were to tell you that two websites accounted for over half of all Internet traffic? Which two do you think it would be? The answer? Netflix and YouTube. That is astounding.

Bit Torrent, for those of you who don’t know, is a piece of software responsible for a very large portion of the illegally downloaded music and movies. Make movies and TV shows easily available for people to legally consume and they will legally consume them. Don’t and they will steal it. Simple as that.
