Default OEM Filter always leaks

I'm on my 9th change and wondering, do any of your oil filters leak after a few days?

Every oil change I get some oil down the side of the filter and I hand tighten it, put oil around the ring etc.

I used aftermarket purolator a few times and those would spray oil on the bottom of my engine so now I am back to OEM but it still leaks a little.
