TPB AFK: The Pirate Bay – Away From Keyboard


www.kickstarter.com

Two years in the making, TPB AFK is a documentary about three computer addicts who revolutionized the world of media distribution with their hobby homepage. How did Tiamo, a beer crazy hardware fanatic, Brokep a tree hugging eco activist and Anakata, a paranoid cyber libertarian, get the White House to threaten the Swedish government with trade sanctions? TPB AFK explores what Hollywood's most hated pirates go through on a personal level.

This was kind of interesting. Aside from the fact about him requesting money which is kind of frowned upon here, I still believe the film will be pretty good information.
I don't believe this has been posted here but might be a good watch especially because the director wants to have it edited professionally to maximize the value. Really interesting what topics this will cover about the Pirate Bay from a while back and how they were convicted of crimes that I personally don't find ethical. What do you guys think?

I always wondered how the US government hasn't persuaded the Swedish Police Force to shut those guys/site down for good.

I use it frequently...
but only for TV shows that I miss on TV. HEY! I pay for cable!

I agree somewhat because there are two sides of the issue. In one sense Copyrighted material is being practically given out for free with the using of these torrents provided from users on the web site, however I think it is a wonderful tool for people trying to get independent movies and music out onto the world.

There are also artists who posts their own copyrighted music for people to download

I mostly use the site for educational material,
I mean tuition for colleges and universities costs like 100,000 dollars,
I cant afford that.....
