Probably due to my own prejudices, I have always assumed that men were more likely than women to be downloading pirated materal.
However, according to TorrentFreak, the top two TV shows downloaded last week were “Desperate Housewives” and “Gossip Girl.” Now it is completely possible that these numbers are due to men who don’t want to admit they watch these shows but I don’t think so.
Instead, I think this indicates that women are quickly becoming just as active in pirating video as men. More and more, I believe that the generation growing up right now will be the first to demonstrate little gender difference when it comes to the use of technology.
None of this explains why “Prison Break” remains one of the top pirated shows every single week…
