Antigua planning government-sanctioned 'warez' site

Nation allowed to offset $21 million per year in US copyright by WTO

The Antiguan government is planning to open an online pirate marketplace, selling American media without reimbursing the copyright holders. The island nation is taking the controversial step in response to a decade of US-enacted legislation against online gambling, which is preventing legal access to the Antiguan sites. The US laws are in contravention of World Trade Organization (WTO) rulings which has allowed the island nation to operate the sites, and market them internationally, including to US markets. The WTO has ruled against the US twice regarding online gambling in Antigua over the past 10 years.
