HBO can’t do anything to stop Game of Thrones piracy

Depending on how one looks at it, Game of Thrones piracy is a problem HBO is lucky to be dealing with. After all, the show nets more viewers via illicit means than many other shows attract altogether. From that perspective, Game of Thrones is so good, so compelling, and ultimately so addicting that those without HBO will do any and everything in their power to catch the latest episodes just after they air. Of course, HBO doesn’t quite look at it that way. As we reported a few weeks ago, HBO in April began going after individual pirates, sending thousands of warnings to suspected pirates via their corresponding ISP. – Yoni Heisler, BGR
