The World's Most Notorious Illegal Music Sites...

Posted 19th May 2010 by Michael Osborn

(from Digital Music News)

After years of legal pursuit, US based LimeWire have been found guilty of copyright infringements and is no more.

So, who's next? RIAA chairman & CEO Mitch Bainwol joined (US) Congressional members of the International Anti-Piracy Caucus (IAPC) to identify the worst copyright offenders. The group pegged China, Russia, Mexico, Canada and Spain as "Top Priority Countries" with "lax intellectual property enforcement".

But are these countries willing to make changes, especially against far more important concerns like the economy, the environment, and poverty?

Alongside the country list, the RIAA also highlighted the 'most notorious illegal sites' on the planet.

The list includes:

  • Baidu (China)
  • IsoHunt (Canada)
  • mp3fiesta (Ukraine)
  • RapidShare (Germany)
  • RMX4U.com (Luxembourg)
  • the Pirate Bay (Sweden).

"Shining the spotlight on these websites sends a vital message to users, advertisers, payment processors and governments around the world", Bainwol declared.
