On the "entrapment" they are using various tricks for this.

Company A, in Jurisdiction A does the entrapment.
Company A provides "proof" to company "B" that resides in jurisdiction  
Company C f*cks over pirates using data from "B", while being in  
jurisdiction D.
In some jurisdictions, entrapment is legal. And in some cases it's  
hard to proof that it is "entrapment".
In case "B" is being trapped on using entrapment, they destroy it, and

And you already know the story behind it. Including the "trade
