Apple Final Cut

Up top we see a new release of Apple’s Final Cut software, a reminder that piracy is platform agnostic. This release comes just one day after the update was released by Apple and shows the strong demand for updated piracy releases.

True Nature of Pirates

Just below that is the most recent build of µTorrent Plus, a paid torrent client that offers little functionality over the basic µTorrent client. This shows the true nature of many of the pirates - even though they don’t need to the extra features they will still pirate it just because it’s available, and even if it’s a part of the toolset that enables them to be pirates!

Microsoft Windows

Further down the list we see more Microsoft Windows releases following on the heels of their major release from two weeks ago. This is a case of spin offs and reposts by other groups trying to leach off of the fame of former releases. Also on the list of prior trends are the stragglers of the Adobe Creative Cloud releases by ChingLiu and another plugin for the same product. It’s not unusual to see these trends continue for a month or so after the initial frenzy.
