In a 2012 Special Report, Ambassador Ronald Kirk, Office of the United States Trade Representative wrote, "The increased availability of broadband Internet connections around the world is generating many benefits… However, this phenomenon has also made the Internet an extremely efficient vehicle for disseminating copyright-infringing products, replacing legitimate markets for rights holders." 2012 Special 301 Report, Executive Office of the President of the United States, Page 16, http://www.ustr.gov/sites
Zero Tolerance founder and CEO Greg Alves says, "These sites have committed massive copyright and trademark infringement and that hurts our brands.
