Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan says piracy “helped” the show to become popular and increase “brand awareness”.
Vince Gilligan, 46, said: “[It] led to a lot of people watching the series who otherwise would not have.
“The downside is a lot of folks who worked on the show would have made more money, myself included, if all those downloads had been legal.”
According to Torrentfreak.com, Breaking Bad final episode was illegally downloaded more than half a million times.
