HBO is sick of Game of Thrones torrents and it’s now going after individual pirates

Long gone are the days when HBO seemingly paid little mind to piracy. Following the leak of the first four episodes of season 5 of Game of Thrones, TorrentFreak is reporting that HBO is now dead serious about thwarting individuals from illegally downloading the world’s most pirated show.

Specifically, HBO is now putting individual pirates on notice. HBO has already issued “thousands of warnings to Internet subscribers whose connections were used to share leaked Game of Thrones episodes.” The warning messages, naturally, are being relayed through each individual user’s ISP.

HBO goes after Game of Thrones pirates on Periscope

HBO goes after Game of Thrones pirates on Periscope

Not only is HBO’s Game of Thrones the most torrented show on TV today, the show’s season 4 finale has the bittersweet distinction of being the most pirated episode in TV history.

Historically, HBO has played nice with pirates. Whether its turning a blind eye towards BitTorrent or even ignoring the widespread sharing of HBO Go credentials, some folks at HBO, to their credit, view piracy as a tool to drum up even more interest in an already successful show.

To wit, Game of Thrones Director David Petarca once said of rampant GOT piracy, “I think it really raises the profile of the show and raises the profile of HBO in general… It really helps the show’s cultural buzz, and it does not impact the bottom line because HBO has more than enough money to keep making the show.”

But even HBO has to draw the line somewhere.

John Oliver interviewed Edward Snowden on Last Week Tonight – watch it here

Edward Snowden was behind one of the biggest leaks of classified information in modern history. The only problem is that most of the information that he leaked is extraordinarily difficult to parse for the average American. Do you really understand what PRISM does? Do you have any idea how Executive Order 12333 affects your life?
