The MPA (Motion Picture Association) annually submits a list of notorious markets to the US Trade Representative for review.
This list is comprised of problematic foreign websites and more that promote or provide access to pirated content.
The document states:
These markets are an immediate threat to legitimate commerce, impairing legitimate markets’ viability and curbing U.S. competitiveness
As first reported by TorrentFreak, this year’s list details a few familiar names including the IPTV Provider BestBuyIPTV.
BestBuyIPTV has recently been on our radar after they created a TROYPOINT IPTV website where they used our logo and branding to sell their illegal service.
TROYPOINT has never operated an IPTV service and never will. We are a technology website that focuses on tutorials, news, and reviews, specifically in the cord-cutting niche.
Many BestBuyIPTV users have reported the service to be unreliable and even scamming them out of money.
If you are using BestBuyIPTV, we suggest you stop immediately.
Not only are they scam artists but they are now in the cross-hairs of the Motion Picture Association which will probably eventually lead to legal problems in the future.

Along with various IPTV Providers, the MPA listed torrent sites, streaming websites, piracy apps, and more.
To go along with these “notorious markets”, the MPA also created a new category in this year’s list.
Piracy-as-a Service or PaaS refers to various platforms that help make it easier for piracy services to function.
PaaS offerings constitute a suite of off-the-shelf services that make it easy for would-be pirates to create, operate, and monetize a fully functioning pirate operation. PaaS providers lower the barriers to entry into commercial piracy.
