Over the past decade, The Pirate Bay has become of the largest, and most controversial, sites on the Internet. We’re constantly hearing from copyright owners how The Pirate Bay is robbing them blind, but what about the men who run the site itself – what do they think?
A new documentary entitled “The Pirate Bay Away From Keyboard” dives into the history of The Pirate Bay and its founders. The film also covers the massive legal battle between the founders and the entertainment industry as the courts were asked if a Web site’s founders can be held accountable for the actions of its users. The Sweden Supreme Court said they can this year by refusing to hear their case, thereby upholding a previous verdict that found the Pirate Bay founders guilty.
In the spirit of The Pirate Bay, the documentary will be released for free online under a Creative Commons license. The actual date of release has not been revealed just yet, but the director says it should be out soon.
