Visits to web sites offering illegal access to music and video have nearly doubled over the last year, and increasingly it's television and films which are being sought out.
The media measurement firm Big Champagne has compiled a top ten of illegal downloads. It's dominated by American drama series, with 55 million people downloading episodes of Heroes in the first half of this year. But the BBC's Top Gear is also amongst the most pirated programmes, with hundreds of thousands of people, many in the United States, downloading each episode of the recent series.
Despite the apparent surge in piracy, the researchers say television should not suffer as much damage to its revenues as the music business has faced.
