The movie is a blistering review of how internet piracy is revolutionizing the film industry – was a word-of-mouth phenomenon attracting over five million downloads. With this official release Jamie King looks again at how Pirate Bay – a peer-to-peer website enabling users to download pirated material – grew from a basement in Mexico to a threat to the entertainment industry, and the catalyst of an international dispute involving the WTO, dawn-raids from the police, and the American and Swedish governments.
The products of Pirate Bay, Piratbyran and The Pirate Party - three key players in Sweden’s copyright infringement culture — incur the wrath of Hollywood and eventually land in a high-profile trial. The engaging exploration of the movement against intellectual property features in-depth interviews with the defendants, as well as attorney Fred von Lohmann, Harvard professor Yochai Benkler and Reddit co-founder Aaron Swartz.
