Artist talk and presentation by Sara Sajjad, a founding member of Swedish arts collective Piratbyran (the Bureau of Piracy).
Sajjad discusses their popular project The Pirate Bay, the world's largest bit torrent file-sharing service on the internet. A landmark trial pitting the Scandanavian pirates vs. Hollywood privateers made international headlines when four defiant Swedes were found guilty of violating copyright law. A discussion about intellectual property and the free culture movement joined by special guests, including folks from MuxTape, a US-based music sharing site that was shut down the year before. Sajjad also discusses related Piratbyran projects and performances, including KopimiTV (CopyMeTV), the CopyRiot ritual, and the Pirate Bus art tour.
