The political firestorm surrounding filmmaker Michael Moore’s “Fahrenheit 9/11” has found its way into the file-sharing world.
The controversial film, like almost every new release, has been circulating online for days. Early last week, anti-Moore Web site MooreWatch. com posted a link to a pirated version of the film available elsewhere on a file-sharing network, noting that the director himself has publicly backed downloading the movie online.
Fahrenheit 9/11’s Michael Moore says the spread of his anti-Bush documentary on p2p file sharing networks is OK with him.
“I don’t agree with the copyright laws and I don’t have a problem with people downloading the movie and sharing it with people as long as they’re not trying to make a profit off my labour,” he’s quoted as saying in the Sunday Herald here.
“I do well enough already and I made this film because I want the world, to change. The more people who see it the better, so I’m happy this is happening.”
