Unfortunately for Netflix, it looks like it's extremely easy to use Google, Yahoo, and other search engines to find illegal streams of the hit series.

How serious of an issue is piracy for Netflix? It's the top competitor in terms of content providers, as the online video service fights for more paying subscribers.
