Taking a page out of the FBI book on crime fighting, the trade groups for some of the top entertainment sectors released for the first time a list of the most "notorious sites."

The International Anti-Piracy Caucus, a group of lawmakers that works closely with the Motion Picture Association of America, the Recording Industry Association of America and a lobbying group for the software industry, named six Web sites that have made themselves infamous for being "overwhelmingly used for the global exchange of illegal movies, music and other copyrighted works." The sites were named Wednesday at a congressional caucus in Washington, D.C.

The six were China's Baidu, Canada's IsoHunt, Ukraine's Mp3fiesta, Germany's RapidShare, Luxembourg's RMX4U.com, and Sweden's The Pirate Bay.
