The once popular BitTorrent tracker, Demonoid is currently in the process of a site revitalization. Early signs of life have begun to appear on the website with messages such as, ‘Coming back soon, please check back later.’
While most online piracy attention falls on The Pirate Bay or isoHunt, Demonoid was the largest private tracker that has ever existed. It was home to over a million users and despite its downfall, it seems as though many anticipate its return.
Should the return of Demonoid warrant a cause for concern for rightsholders? Take a look at the following charts that were recently published by DMCA Force to give you a better insight into the amount of piracy we encounter.
In the ‘Piracy URLS by Type’ chart you will notice 54% of pirate URLS come from torrent sites. With the anticipated revival of Demonoid, it will only be a matter of time before rightsholders can see their original work floating around the infamous torrent site.
