Actually, even on The Pirate Bay, a fake torrent can get listed with thousands of seeders.
The thing is, the company the MPAA are outsourcing this pirate hunt to, aren't the brightest.
They'll create torrents for Iron Man 3, or The Walking Dead episode 1x07 or something.
And they'll create a dozen torrents with thousands of seeders each, in under 10 minutes.
It's really really not difficult to avoid fakes.
And yeah, anyone who downloads software from a Torrent site, is asking to be owned.
