Watch the New Pirate Bay Documentary Free Online

Last Fri­day night, TPB AFK: The Pirate Bay Away From Key­board pre­miered at the Berlin Film Fes­ti­val. Moments lat­er, the indie doc­u­men­tary became freely avail­able online, which left the film’s direc­tor, Simon Klose, grin­ning, not grum­bling. It makes sense when you con­sid­er the premise of the film. Pirate Bay is, of course, the web site that allows users to share media (music, movies, games, soft­ware) through a peer-to-peer file shar­ing pro­to­col, some of it copy­right­ed, some of it not. And the new film, writes Wired, doc­u­ments “the hec­tic tri­al of Pirate Bay admin­is­tra­tors Fredrik Neij, Got­tfrid Svartholm Warg, and Peter Sunde, who were even­tu­al­ly con­vict­ed in a civ­il and crim­i­nal copy­right case in Swe­den in 2009 that pit­ted them against the gov­ern­ment and the enter­tain­ment indus­try.”

TPB AFK is avail­able on YouTube and Pirate Bay too. It’s also list­ed in our col­lec­tion of Free Doc­u­men­taries, part of our col­lec­tion of 635 Free Movies Online.
