The documentary peering into the lives of the people behind The Pirate Bay, TPB AFK, is set to be released as a free download on February 8 - the same time that the doco gets shown at the Berlinale, Berlin's international film festival.

TPB AFK's director, Simon Klose, has said that it's the first movie that will be released online at the same time as its Berlinale screening. Klose hopes that the release plans will mirror the documentary's subject matter itself, which I'm sure it will. He adds:

By sharing this film under a Creative Commons license, we hope to contribute to a serious debate about the social and economic benefits of sharing. We also hope to prove that sharing can be a realistic business model.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR - Anthony Garreffa

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
