Must see for CopyRight lovers.

Excellent film. This is one film that took very long to make and was long expected. it gives you an excellent overview to what Piratebay is and what is its vision and mission ( although if you are a internet user, its highly unlikely that you are not already familiar with TPB)

we get to go around on the journey with 3 people who have the most influence on PirateBay and see the story and their troubles from their view points, not based on the lies that's being spread in the media. I personally had a immediate attachment to these people and I respect their work.

We get to see how far corporate giants in Hollywood will go to bring down these who are essentially creating buzz for them. Hollywood does not realize that the file sharing sites such as TPB does not damage their companies but rather by sharing the files online, they create an unwanted "buzz" that eventually leads to more profits for the companies. this point is very well shown in the film.

one interesting aspect is that you can see how the US ( mainly Hollywood) companies try to bully these guys off their ground. as if they also have such power in other lands. it is really sickening.

10/10. recommended to everyone.
