Synopsis:
Intellectual Property professor and anarchist Jamie King has become a figure-head for the pro-piracy movement. Steal This Film II explains how and why the war against file-sharing has been lost and the huge potential of new avenues of grassroots distribution, peer-to-peer networks and piracy that fly in the face of the old established Hollywood models. The team behind the film, or the 'League of Noble Peers' as they are known, intended the film to be a rally call to 'bring new people into the leagues of those now prepared to think creatively about the future of distribution, production and creativity'. In line with the film's polemical argument, Steal This Film II is available to view via free download, and in the first 48 hours alone, over 150,000 people had downloaded it and over $5000 had been donated to go towards the next feature project.
