The number of gambling adverts on illegal websites has dropped by a third since the Gambling Commission joined a police operation aimed at disrupting websites that break copyright laws.
Earlier this year the Commission teamed up with the Police Intellectual Property Crime Unit (PIPCU) for Operation Creative – an operation aimed at reducing the advertising revenue of sites providing access to pirated films, music and books.
Since then PIPCU has seen a 36per cent decrease in gambling adverts on copyright infringing websites.
