Michael Moore: Piracy is ok.
One of my 'favorite' directors, Michael Moore, was asked at a press conference about how he felt about copies of his movie, "Sicko," available online, 2 weeks before it opens in theaters.
Moore, who made the controversial films "Bowling for Columbine" and "Fahrenheit 9/11," has said in the past that he doesn't mind the masses bootlegging his films, as long as it's not for profit. His movie, "Sicko," which hit theaters June 29th, is available for download on bit torrent sites. Moore stood by his original statement - that he doesn't mind piracy, as long as it's not for profit. He said he'd rather for the message to get out any way possible.
I do think (and know) his movies are politically motivated, but I really enjoy watching them.
Power to the people!!!
