Tits & decapitations show Game of Thrones has smashed its own internet piracy record once again, with the most recent episode of the fantasy romp being shared by a spike of 250,000 people simultaneously.

According to stats aggregated by TorrentFreak, around 1.5 million people around the world downloaded/stole the episode within the first 12 hours of it hitting the torrent sites, shifting around 2,000 terabytes of data. That's why the ISPs would rather we didn't use the internet for shovelling HD media around the place. [TorrentFreak]
