Result of a recent study of ipoque GmbH:

Depending on the time of the day, P2P has a proportion between 30% (daytime) and 70% (nighttime) of the complete Internet traffic in Germany. [...] The most popular files are still current movies, music and computer games, [...]
[...]
All of the most frequently shared files are current releases such as movies currently showing in movie theatres. It is apparent that all of these files massively violate copyrights.
