Antigua Government Set to Launch “Pirate” Website To Punish United States | TorrentFreak: "Hoping to rebuild the gambling business Antigua filed a dispute at the World Trade Organization (WTO), which they won. In 2005 the WTO ruled that the US refusal to let Antiguan gambling companies access their market violated free-trade, as domestic companies were allowed to operate freely. In 2007 the WTO went a step further and granted Antigua the right to suspend U.S. copyrights up to $21 million annually.
TorrentFreak is informed by a source close to Antigua’s Government that the country now plans to capitalize on this option. The authorities want to launch a website selling U.S. media to customers worldwide, without compensating the makers. The plan has been in the works for several months already and Antigua is ready to proceed once they have informed the WTO about their plan. " 'via Blog this'
