And the Most Pirated Movie Award goes to …

According to today’s NY Times, the most pirated movie of 2009 was the popular Star Trek prequel.

The award for “most notorious film piracy”, however, goes to X-Men Origins:  Wolverine which made it to illegal file-sharing avenues on the Internet one month before being released in the theaters.

Other movies that made 2009’s “most pirated” list included the Transformers sequel, The Hangover, and Guy Ritchie’s RocknRolla.  And, of course, far be it from me to talk about digital copyright piracy without mentioning Stephenie Meyer films.  The original Twilight made it to no.3 on the most pirated list, although the sequel (New Moon) has apparently not yet made it.
