The European Union's Office for Criminal Justice Cooperation has issued a leaflet on the use of advertising to fund websites and mobile apps that offer pirated content, which has become an insidious practice in the online piracy landscape.

This booklet provides an overview of the scale of the problem, the actors operating in the advertising ecosystem and the types and formats of advertising. It also examines links to malicious advertising and other crimes and presents various examples of national case law and existing EU initiatives to combat advertising on piracy websites.
