These and more are the controversial, thought-provoking, and extremely relevant topics covered in the stylish and interesting documentary TPB AFK. In this modern day and age, it is important to watch documentaries such as this, to make your own conclusions of the evidence put forth, and take a side on the raging debate that surrounds the availability of information and entertainment, and the consequences of copyright.

A young Swedish man sits in court. He is pale, with bags under his eyes, his dress is informal and his tone cocky. This is Peter Sunde, co-founder of one of the biggest and most controversial websites in the world - The Pirate Bay, a BitTorrent hosting site.
A lawyer asks him a question, referring to Sunde's colleagues, "When was the first time you met IRL?"
"We don't use that term anymore," says Sunde, "we say AFK. We think the Internet is real." The judge is puzzled, "IRL? AFK? What is that?"
Sunde, in English, replies, "In real life. Away from keyboard."

This is the story of three men who founded one of the biggest websites in the world, and their life away from keyboard. Beautifully filmed (I am of course, referring to the footage shot by Simon Klose, not the security cam footage or archive footage shown), well-edited, and constantly provocative, TPB AFK is one of the best documentaries of 2012. It might not be the most entertaining or informative, but in the world of the 2010's, it is perhaps the most relevant, the most likely to touch our own lives.

If you download any illegal content movie, music apps, ect then you need to watch this. It shows how the industry does not know how to adapt to everything being able to be shared and copied and blame it on the pioneers that show us the future of making money of content. Great movie please support it.

A film about how intellectual property should be free (at least that's what the protagonists say). But I must pay $3.99 to view it or $9.99 to own a copy (that I can't reproduce or redistribute).
Who's getting the money? I don't mind Amazon getting some of it, since they are holding and delivering the content. But I sure as hell hope that the "protagonists" get nothing, since that's what they are advocating.
I'm speaking as someone who lives by my creative efforts, and expects to be compensated if you want my work, and especially if you expect to re-sell it. I guess the rest of you "protagonists"expect to work for free. Good luck with that.
