Monique Wadstead - Hollywood's Lawyer: The pirate movement's idea to fight for free file sharing just isn't accepted anymore. It was just a little fad. I never thought it would survive.

Great documentary
8 February 2013 | by StoffeSee all my reviews

Excellent story about real people taking the blame for dinosaurs failure to evolve. It is amazing too see how different generations fail to communicate. Please give the power and money back to the artists, make them understand they have to work to have an income, that culture is a commodity that is cheap because of the extreme supply and abolish the right to own other peoples copyrights.

Simon Klose makes an objective documentation of our time and puts the people ahead of the story. This is not a film in the end about piracy, it is a film about however unlikely an insurgent, an ideologist and a techie ended up together against the rest of the organised world. About individual loss but the win of a just cause.
