Mel Gibson's hit movie The Passion Of The Christ has set an unwanted record as the most pirated movie on internet filesharing networks in April (04).

While the controversial film has slipped out of America's box office top 10 in recent weeks, it's become hugely popular among internet users hoping to score a free copy.

According to California-based online piracy tracking firm BAYTSP, 36,693 copes of the movie were circulating on filesharing networks such as KAZAA and eDONKEY.

21 GRAMS came in second with 32,035 pirated copies.
