Synopsis

Documentary examining what implications the boom in internet piracy, and in particular the peer-to-peer file-sharing phenomenon, hold for the entertainment industry at large. With the explosion of interest in sites such as 'Pirate Bay', Hollywood studios have been forced to take legal action to protect their product from pirate download sites. This programme examines the possible cultural and financial implications that copyright theft holds for both the industry and society in general, as well as highlighting how developments in technology are creating an explosion in consumer generated products.
