For thoose who are unaware what this documentary is about:

Steal This Film is a film series documenting the movement against intellectual property and was a talking point in the British Documentary Festival.[2] Part One, produced in Sweden and released in 2006, takes account of the prominent players in the Swedish piracy culture: The Pirate Bay, Piratbyrån, and the Pirate Party. This film includes a critical analysis of an alleged regulatory capture[3] performed by the Hollywood film industry to leverage economic sanctions by the United States government on Sweden through the WTO. Alleged aims included the application of pressure to Swedish police into conducting a search and seizure against Swedish law for the purpose of disrupting The Pirate Bay's BitTorrent tracker.

Thank god its finally out and thank god it was worth the wait! Much more serious and mature than the last one and didnt focus nearly as much on The Pirate Bay.

I'm having trouble getting any of the formats to play correctly. It's as if I don't have the appropriate codecs. Any suggestions?

I thought most of the film was poorly conceived. They completely ignored most of the arguments against piracy; or at best they simply brushed them aside (sure, content creators lose money with piracy.. but.... uh... look, a bird!). Then they missed most of the effective arguments FOR software piracy (such as the idea that intellectual property is illegitimate to begin with) and instead dished out laugh-out-loud lame arguments such as "piracys not so bad because, uh, well, most people who do piracy use it to create new content themselves". Anyone who can claim with a straight face that most, or even a significant portion of, piracy is used to create new content is a liar at best and delusional at worst.
