Well, here's one film that will be okay for you to download from Pirate Bay, the notorious Swedish torrent site that has angered many powerful players in Tinseltown over the recent years. Of course, it's a feature-length documentary that examines the controversy surrounding the rebellious website founders and their history-making legal battle with Hollywood. Take a look at the film's trailer, which has gone viral over the weekend.
The filmmakers have stated their indie movie, titled "TPB AFK: The Pirate Bay Away From Keyboard," will be released online for free (either streamable or downloadable), starting sometime in the Spring. The doc will also be available for sale in DVD format. For more info, you can check out their website at watch.tpbafk.tv.
It’s the day before the trial starts. Fredrik packs a computer into a rusty old Volvo. Along with his Pirate Bay co-founders, he faces $13 million in damage claims to Hollywood in a copyright infringement case. Fredrik is on his way to install a new computer in the secret server hall. This is where the world’s largest file sharing site is hidden. When the hacker prodigy Gottfrid, the internet activist Peter and the network nerd Fredrik are found guilty, they are confronted with the reality of life offline --away from keyboard. But deep down in dark data centers, clandestine computers quietly continue to duplicate files.
