Fresh from the "advertising dept" at the USTR it seems is a list of the places "pirates" grab their booty http://variety.com/2014/biz/news/u-s-trade-representative-identifies-notorious-piracy-sites-1201098707/
Putlocker.com, Rapidshare.com and The PirateBay.se have enjoyed huge traffic on the Internet, but they also have earned a distinction of being among the most “notorious” online sites when it comes to piracy.
U.S. Trade Representative Michael Froman on Wednesday will release the annual list of “notorious” marketplaces, online and physical marketplaces that “reportedly engage in and facilitate substantial piracy and counterfeiting.”
According to an advanced release of the report, 23 sites made the list, which Froman’s office compiled after public input, including filings from the Motion Picture Assn. of American and the Recording Industry Assn. of America.
I find it wholly suprising that they want to advertise sites in this way, is this a way of keeping themselves in a job ?
