Quotes

One of the lawyers: How did you meet Fredrik and Gottfrid?
Peter Sunde: I don't remember, but I assume it was in a chat room on the internet.
One of the lawyers: When was the first time you met IRL?
Peter Sunde: We don't use the expression IRL. We say AFK. But that's another issue. But, I don't remember that either.
Tomas Norström - District Court Judge: Got to know each other IRL? What is that?
One of the lawyers: In Real Life.
Peter Sunde: We don't like that expression. We say AFK - Away From Keyboard. We think that the internet is for real.

Great Film, Long Live the PirateBay
10 February 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The film is excellent at portraying how corrupt large corporations are especially the Media, they will stop at nothing to squeeze every penny they can out of your pockets and Piratebay are liberators, they allow us to download the movie then decide if we want to pay for it or not it's a truly fair system, I bought Avatar, Batman, Saw series, Harry Potter etc. Disappointing films like the Skyline will not see a penny from my pocket.

A Big thank out to the creators of the Piratebay, you have truly changed the world!

Max
