Homer shows pirate copies of downloaded movies to his friends but after Marge has accidentally informed on him he is arrested by the FBI and the family is forced to take refuge in the Swedish consulate, from where Homer is eventually taken to court. However, his impassioned speech on the rights of the ordinary man against the might of big business earns him an acquittal as well as a movie based on his own experiences - though he refuses to screen a pirate copy of it.

The film Homer illegally downloads "Cosmic Wars - Episode 7" parodies "Star Wars: The Force Awakens", the 7th film in the Star Wars film franchise. In a scene of Cosmic Wars - Episode 7, which Bart uses to distract the FBI agents, Yoda, armed with a red lightsaber, battles Mandalorian warriors aboard a Imperial Star Destroyer. Yoda does not appear in "Star Wars: The Force Awakens", which the character had died 30 years before and Yoda never turned to the Dark Side, Sith Lords are known for fighting with Red lighsabers.

(Possibly intentional by the makers of the show) The FBI try to get the Simpsons out of the Swedish Consulate by "blasting Death Metal", at which point Judas Priest show up, playing "Breaking the Law". The Swedish ambassador starts to headbang and says the Swedes love Death Metal. That statement is correct, seeing as Gothenburg Metal a.k.a. Swedish Melodic Death Metal was the start of Melodic Death Metal. Judas Priest, however, are not Death Metal, they belong to the New Wave of British Heavy Metal genre. See more
