The Internet has revolutionized the world in more ways than one. Starting as a virtual storehouse of all information, it progressed to provide other services such as downloading songs, music videos, and movies for free.

In addition to watching movies in the cinema, you have the option to rent a video and watch it in the privacy of your home. Although movie rental is still a popular option, the latest addition is to download movies from the Internet.

The trend of downloading movies from the Internet has become so popular that a website has claimed that at least three billion movies, video songs and clips were downloaded in just one month. The claim may or may not be overkill, but it definitely points to the growing popularity of movie downloading.

One way to download a movie is the file sharing method. This works in the same way as sharing music files. The process is, for the most part, illegal. Those involved gain access to previews of the films, copy the film and put it on websites. In fact, these movies reach people faster than in theaters.

Film companies can lose, and it is not surprising that they have tried to legally resort to finding a solution.

In an attempt to stop this threat, movie companies are trying to save the day by offering movies for free download. For this, customers must pay a fee and view the movie within twenty-four hours or the files will be inaccessible.
