Which Countries Linked With The Most Online Piracy?

Which Countries Linked With The Most Online Piracy?

The Notorious Market study from the US government provides an in-depth look into the most popular online piracy platforms as well as the countries that are linked to them. 

Which countries are linked to most online piracy


Russia has hosted SciHub, which is widely regarded as one of the “most biggest pirate sites,” allowing illicit access to more than 70 million journal articles and academic papers.


Over the years, the Netherlands has hosted a number of sites, including Turbobit, Kinogo, and The Pirate Bay.


Vietnam has hosted the sites 123movies and GoMovies.

France, Germany, Switzerland, and Sweden 

These relatively powerful EU countries have their own piracy problems, having hosted big piracy sites such as Openload and Movshare Group domains.

How are these countries dealing with online piracy?

Because their combined influence may have the greatest impact, trade groups often take the lead on enforcement and policy making. 

The MPAA for Hollywood, the RIAA and IFPI for the recording and music industry, and WIPO for intellectual property in general are among the most active. 

Because the groundwork is lengthy and the cost is often high, only trade associations and major corporations have pursued these hosting sites due to the problem of international law.

How do these host networks operate?

The emergence of a DMCA Ignored Hosting infrastructure has made policy enforcement more difficult. These host networks, which are the hosting equivalent of an offshore account, allow piracy sites to continue to function in the face of cease and desist orders.

Due to the legal environments of middle income and BRICS countries, enforcing anti-piracy laws worldwide can be a hard and time-consuming process.

Complex international copyright protections, corruption within the hosting country, and the stalled growth of the state’s cybercrime enforcement are all factors in the legal environment that could have an impact on anti-piracy operations.
