movie with appear on the internet for free on the same day it premieres at the Berlin Film Festival on February 8.

"The Pirate Bay: Away From Keyboard
" tells the story of the site's three founders and their legal battle in Sweden. But unlike most movies, it doesn't have a happy ending.
"It's still a f--ked up story and the film makes me think about the past years of my life quite a lot
," said Pirate Bay co-founder Peter Sunde
in an interview with Torrent Freak
He added: "I don't want to tell too much about it because people should see it and make up their own minds. After seeing the full movie for the first time I was thinking about it for about two weeks without having an opinion or words to describe it
Meanwhile, the Pirate Party which forms political anti-copyright parties around the world has been officially accepted in Australia - but rejected in Russia.
The Russian Misitry of Justice originally blocked the Pirate Party because its name promoted "sea crimes
," and has now been blocked again for using the word "pirate
" in its party name.
