metrobest on Flickr, a cool infographic showing that the most pirated movies on the web are not the bestselling, blockbusters you might expect. Not sure who the author is, but it may be "5W Infographics España"

I had to post this one. TorrentFreak.com revealed that The Pirate Bay has quietly released a Google powered map site that shows the locations of the bit-torrent clients. Of course they carefully maintain the anonymity of their users.
You can click on the icon over a particular country to see their statistics. From everything I hear, I would have thought the U.S. to have more pirates...ARRRRR!

Pirates infographic from the Russian News and Information Agency. These are real pirates at sea (not online pirates stealing software, music and movies). 433 victims and 292 kidnappings in 2007! (EDITED: there were only 5 deaths, not 433)
Article 100 of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) requires that all states fight against piracy. The annual damage from piracy to the global economy is around 15 billion Euros ($12 Billion).This one and many other infographics are available online at the Russian News and Information Agency's infographics page.
