Have a quick glance at this news release from NPD a home video market research company.  Basically, illegal filesharing is around 4 times more popular than paying for downloads.

No surprise there, and Ryan Paul has a good summary of why this continues to be the case:

  • More choice of content
  • No rights management restrictions on use
  • Higher technical quality
