Steal This Film 2.5: Spectrial Edition (2009)
The League of Noble Peers
Steal This Film is a film series documenting the movement against intellectual property produced by The League of Noble Peers and released via the BitTorrent peer-to-peer protocol. Two parts, and one special The Pirate Bay trial edition of the first part, have been released so far, and The League of Noble Peers is working on "Steal this Film - The Movie" and a new project entitled "The Oil of the 21st Century". Boing Boing's Cory Doctorow called it 'an amazing, funny, enraging and inspiring documentary series'. This 'special edition' (also known as '2.5') was released to coincide with the trial in 2009 of The Pirate Bay. This version includes material from Steal This Film I and II combined with some new material shot with Peter Sunde and others during 2008. Steal This Film 'Spectrial Edition' is widely available online and it is thought to be this version that is now available to television stations and others. This new edition of Steal This Film is in part of the Official Selection and in competition at the 2009 Roma Fiction Festival (Factual strand).
