Movie pirating used to be something that happened quietly behind closed doors.

People flock to Reddit and other online forums to openly discuss movie theft, and the most popular means of downloading stolen movies are widely publicized services like The Pirate Bay and Popcorn Time.
And when it comes to the latter, it turns out Popcorn Time isn’t just a tiny little piracy tool. The industry has taken notice and now Netflix, the biggest streaming movie and TV show service in the world, has directly named Popcorn Time as a threat. More →
