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.

the pirate bay will never lose.
9 February 2013 | by cornrocketSee all my reviews

I give it a nine for the cause.

The movie really showed me how stupid the system is getting into jail because of a crime they did not commit, only because of the pressure from other countries. Thats just wrong.

Altho the movie showed us a lot there was many things forgotten. I wanted to know more about the crew, how they started the site, finance and personally stuff about them. I feel like the movie was to short... It didn't really gave us the whole picture of it all. Also I would like to know more about the technology stuff about the servers and programing about the site.

I did find it very different to other movies because it was made for geeks like my self and therefor i found it very good.
