Just a few days ago Warez-BB was highlighted in a report from the United States Trade Representative (USTR).

Here, the forum was described as a site that sustains global piracy.

“This forum site, which is reportedly based in Luxembourg, Switzerland and Sweden and is ranked among the top 700 sites globally, is described as a hub for the sharing of copyrighted works, including pre-release music. Industry efforts to remove infringing content are hampered by the very quick replacement of removed content.”
