Online search engine finds more than 1.2 million books that have been pirated
More than 1 million books from online sources are pirated every day, according to a new study.
The study, from the University of Maryland, found that the site popular information findser, which aggregates information on a wide variety of topics, collected more than 2.7 million books on the Web in January, compared with 2.3 million in December.
That is an increase of more than 70 percent.
The number of books on popular information that are downloaded or downloaded illegally was 467,837, compared to just 36,746 in December, according the study.
It’s the largest number of pirated books on a monthly basis since October, when the site first started collecting pirated content.
It also is more than twice as many as the total number of illegal downloads from its site.
The Internet Archive, which owns popular information, is monitoring the problem to see if it can help.
It has collected a small percentage of the illegal downloads, which have been taken off the site, said David Pogue, a senior policy analyst at the Internet Archive.
“The data shows there are legitimate uses for the data that we collect, and we’re just not doing that,” he said.
The increased number of downloads from popular information may be linked to a broader trend among Internet users that the sites site is getting a lot of attention in the U.S., said Andrew Giambrone, a professor at the University the University College London, who wasn’t involved in the study but wrote an opinion piece for the Associated Press.
A survey last year found that more than a third of U.K. adults are now searching for information on pirated material on the Internet.
The number of online searches for “books that are copyrighted or that are part of a copyrighted work” increased by 23 percent between 2015 and 2016, the research showed.
Pogue, of the Internet archive, said that, while most of the increased search traffic is to search for information that is available on the copyright-infringing books, there is also a growing interest in finding information on other popular information sources.
The search volume of popular information on the sites main site, populous, has grown by more than 200 percent in the past year, according, the study, which analyzed 1,700 articles from about 1,500 publishers.
Populous is one of the most popular search engines in the world.
The website also has more than 4 million articles on more than 40,000 topics, including music, food, fashion, technology, and more.
The research was based on a review of more 100 million words in a search database that covers more than 8.4 million words on the website.
