Office of the US Trade Representative, USTR published the next report Out-of-Cycle Review of Notorious Markets, in which listed the pirate online and offline spots.

Among the most well known and popular making the list are Russia’s “Rutracker,” Ukraine-based “Demonoid” and Sweden’s “The Pirate Bay.” As for the physical places around the world, the list includes the Moscow Savelovsky market and the Kyiv Petrovka market.

"V kontakte" (in contact -ed.), the Russian website to meet your lost group mates and friends, is describes as a resource granting access to pirate materials.

The report also named and shamed Chinese search engine Baidu and e-commerce giant Taobao as "notorious markets" for counterfeit and pirated goods. Ten of the blacklisted markets are from China.

The USTR declares its report “does not purport to reflect findings of legal violations” – which is basically true. The USTR just wants other agencies to use its findings to uncover legal violations and shut down the perpetrators.
