Piracy doesn't always hurt the content creator

Game of Thrones

Game of Thrones has been the most pirated TV show of 2012, being downloaded an average of 3.9 million times per episode. When confronted with these numbers, David Petrarca, who has directed episodes of Game of Thrones, responded that the illegal downloads did not matter because such shows thrived on "cultural buzz" and capitalized on the increased social commentary the added viewership creates.
