    a partner like iLivid actively buys advertising on movie streaming and torrent sites for its video downloader program.

    A customized "Movies" toolbar by Ask is included with iLivid, indicating that IAC knows very well where the traffic is coming from. iLivid buys traffic directly from one of the most popular torrent sites, The Pirate Bay, and buys so much of it that a Pirate Bay user pleaded for mercy on Facebook (FB), "Could you kindly stop advertising Ilivid on your site?" The Pirate Bay uses an anonymous advertising network to place ads on its site , which has been linked to spreading malware, and all media buys on the site must be negotiated through email so it is not possible for a buyer to claim ignorance of who they are buying advertising from.
