‘Jessica Jones’ Piracy Surges, but Far Less Than ‘Daredevil’ Levels

While Netflix undoubtedly saw a surge of activity around the release of “Marvel’s Jessica Jones” this past weekend, the new original series also saw strong piracy consumption as well, according to data issued Monday by Excipio.

Only perennial piracy favorite “The Walking Dead” experienced more copyright-infringing viewing from Nov. 20-22 than “Jessica,” which grabbed 4% global market share compared with the 4.5% commanded by AMC’s zombie series.  “Jessica” attracted over 663,000 unique IP addresses downloading episodes of its first season, which Netflix made available in its entirety across all of its markets worldwide.

However, “Jessica” received roughly half the piracy activity attracted earlier this year by “Daredevil,” the first original series Netflix produced in collaboration with Marvel. While “Daredevil” also finished second overall in its opening weekend (April 10-12), the over 1.2 million IP addresses its episodes drew was good for 6.1% market share.

The U.S. led in “Jessica” piracy viewing, followed by United Kingdom, India and Brazil. “Daredevil” saw a similar pattern.
