Is genuine viewership gaining against piracy?

Netflix and YouTube Dominate Online Video. Can Amazon Catch Up?

Another interesting tidbit from the traffic report: File sharing is losing ground. BitTorrent, the dominant file-sharing
technology, accounted for only 7.4 percent of total traffic in September, down from more than 10 percent last year, and file sharing as a whole has dropped from 31 percent of traffic in 2008 to less than 10 percent today. If you want to argue that legal alternatives are the best way to cut down on piracy, this seems like a pretty compelling statistic.

Seems so.
