Pirates’ recent plunder

'24,' 'Family Guy,' 'Smallville' popular Torrent targets

There’s no summer hiatus for piracy, where “Lost” continues to dominate the list of TV and movie properties that online downloaders are looking for.

Per the latest data from BitTorrent, the company behind the popular piracy software, TV shows that are a big draw for younger auds, like “Lost,” “24,” “Family Guy” and “Smallville,” are the only constants in the top searches by Netizens looking for illegal downloads, along with the apparently timeless “Star Wars.”

Rest of the list is full of recent hit movies, which tend to fade from the piracy charts as fast as they do from theaters.
