The SIPI report entitled ‘Badvertising: When Ads go Rogue’, prepared for the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI) in 2017, tracked over 1,000 popular pirate sites accessible from India and found 73% of these were supported by advertising revenue, often from leading multinational corporations with the potential of generating large revenues for the pirate sites concerned.
