Jessica Jones is the latest Netflix release to get plundered by pirates, but not as heavily as Daredevil, Variety reports:
Only perennial piracy favorite “The Walking Dead” experienced more copyright-infringing viewing from Nov. 20-22 than “Jessica,” which grabbed 4% global market share compared with the 4.5% commanded by AMC’s zombie series. “Jessica” attracted over 663,000 unique IP addresses downloading episodes of its first season, which Netflix made available in its entirety across all of its markets worldwide.
However, “Jessica” received roughly half the piracy activity attracted earlier this year by “Daredevil,” the first original series Netflix produced in collaboration with Marvel.
Will piracy harm Jessica Jones‘ plans for Season 2 or beyond? It didn’t stop Daredevil from evading the Cancellation Reaper, so while it’s all relative, the future still looks bright for Jessica Jones.
Netflix will hope the additional ‘exposure’ works in its favor in the longer run.
Stay tuned as we continue to monitor the status of Marvel’s Jessica Jones Season 2….
