Bulgarian torrent site named in report to US congress on internet piracy

Bulgarian torrent tracker site Zamunda has been named in a report to the United States congress by the working group against internet piracy.

The United States congress considers Russia, Ukraine and China the countries with most favourable conditions for violating copyright, according to the report.

The US government is advised to pay serious attention to solving the problem of copyright violations in Russia, China, Ukraine, Switzerland and Italy, RIA Novosti reported, quoted by local news agency Focus.

The document, published on September 21 2012, says that inadequate observation of intellectual property rights in these countries causes harm to US authors and the US economy as a whole.

In 2012 Italy and Switzerland enter the “black list” for the first time, while Russia, Ukraine and China were recognised as the top pirate countries last year.

The US list of violators of copyrights includes Russian torrent portals, as well as similar websites in Bulgaria and Ukraine, such as Zamunda and Demonoid, respectively.
