The US piracy Watch List

Apparently Canada has been added to the IAPC watch list (Billboard), joining illustrious piracy havens such as China and Russia. The fact that the US has this list is somewhat a joke since it is itself one of the biggest digital content piracy melting pots. Among the biggest threats to US content are the number of casual pirates in the US itself, and the scale of commercial digital piracy being enabled by numerous sites.

Where do I start?

Google-hosted blogs linking to infringing content – this is now a substantial source of unreleased music content leaking.

Limewire – a case lumbering it’s way to court.

Soulseek – as far as I can see has been left alone.

The huge number of file-lockers hosting infringing content.

Social networks used for large-scale infringement (e.g. Hi5, Bebo and Multiply).

BitTorrent index sites (e.g. TorrentReactor, TorrentPortal and BTmon)

When will this fat-bellied, dinosaur of a country think about getting its own house in order and leading by example before putting other countries on lists? They’ll be handing out detentions next!
