Some torrent sites have public trackers which make that information readily available - total downloaded and uploaded numbers, total complete copies distributed, and so forth. I'm not familiar with any of the sites used to so distribute eBooks, but if any use torrents it would not surprise me to discover the information is there for the publishers to use at their leisure.
