As you might expect, the official Pirate Bay movie with appear on the internet for free on the same day it premieres at the Berlin Film Festival on February 8.

It will be the first films to officially premiere both online and at a leading film festival, unlike Hollywood films which can take months to appear outside of cinemas.

"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.

    I guess Pirates of the Caribbean must be banned in Russia as well, wouldn't want to promote those sea crimes.

    Great a film about robin hood. How what he believes is the god damn truth and how dare capitalism stop him. Torrents can **** off, free loading scum bags.

    This is going to be preachy and pretentious, i'm sure of it. I'll probably give it a watch, though. I think WHAT you download should be a matter of principle in itself, sadly it's not. If people only stole shizzle from thriving industries, it really would be no problem. However, in most cases it just adds up to the same kind of greed and lazyness that the diehard-pirate-mofo's happen to preach against. I always loved irony. It's when hypocrisy is so stupid that it just makes you laugh.
