MIT Harbors The Most P2P Pirates

There are many school selection guides on the Internet, but none of them lists universities ranked by the number of recorded copyright infringements. Thanks to the copyright infringement “Trends & Insights” report published by BayTSP today, we can construct such a list.

In the United States, MIT is leading the list for the second year in a row, followed by the newcomer University of Washington. Purdue University dropped 4 spots and is now ranked 8th, but this could be due to the fact that students at Purdue launched their own private P2P network.

BayTSP reports that the overall number of copyright infringements hasn’t changed much over the past three years, despite the expensive anti-piracy systems that were implemented.
