Welcome back to the latest Top 10 Most Pirated Applications. Another week, another dive into the depths of the world of the top desktop software torrents.

Top_10_Software_Torrents

This week we see a wealth of interesting releases break into the Top 10, in part due to reduced traffic. Our past experience has shown that the week of Thanksgiving in the United States is traditionally a very low traffic week in the piracy world (both in downloading and usage of pirated applications). Because of this overall low traffic we’re able to see some releases that would normally be overshadowed by the usual suspects.

Kicking off the top of the list is Pinnacle Studio, a popular video editing suite produced by Corel Software. This is the most recent version of the software, an upgrade to the version 17 that we saw earlier this year in July.

Looking past the typical Windows releases we see a newcomer: iZotope Iris, digital synthesizer software used in music production.

Also new to our list is TechSmith’s Camtasia Studio product. This software is a screen recording and video editing suite that is often used to create technical tutorial videos. One final video-related application appears for the first time this week: WinAVI’s All-In-One converter software, used to convert video and audio to multiple popular formats.

Also seen this week is software called FrostWire. This is the popular replacement to LimeWire and is an interface for the Gnutella peer-to-peer network. This is a free piece of software, but is often used to pirate media directly from other users' computers. While this used to be a very popular way to retrieve pirated material, it is now used less and less, with most users favoring torrents instead.
