Nearly Half of 'Game of Thrones' Season 5 Has Leaked Online

Well, that’s going to make a short season for Game of Thrones. big grin HBO has a serious case of leakage which put nearly half of the upcoming current season in the hands of 800K torrent downloaders yesterday and today and still counting. This fact doesn’t seem to even faze HBO as much as it does other companies, since HBO seems to consider it a form of advertising and promotion. eek!

"Our experience is [piracy] leads to more penetration, more paying subs, more health for HBO, less reliance on having to do paid advertisingآ… If you go around the world, I think you’re right, Game of Thrones is the most pirated show in the world. Well, you know, that’s better than an Emmy."
