wolverine1999 writes "Tthe results of an EU-wide “digital content sweep” have shown that around 75% of websites which sell games, books, videos and music that can be transferred to a mobile device, have some kind of illegality.

For instance some games are "free" but you end up having to pay for virtual items to proceed further.
Illegal websites will be forced to comply by August otherwise further action will be taken by the EU.
