The market for legal movies is still booming even though the pirate market is taking over. We had a look at the top Top 20 Most Pirated Movies of 2014 and Top 10 Most Pirated TV Shows of 2014, but this time round we break down the figures for 2014’s Top 10 Selling DVDs in the United States. There is a considerable drop in DVD sales compared to last year, and some might agree that piracy is the main contributing factor. At a quick glance when comparing the total downloads for the most pirated movie, “The Wolf of Wall Street” was illegally downloaded 30.035 million times, and Frozen, the most purchased DVD, sold 9,839,243 units. Considering The Pirate Bay was removed a couple of weeks ago, will we see sales of legal content soaring again?
