In support of the world’s largest center of culture, The Pirate Bay, FAT Lab members will be throwing Academy Awards P2P gatherings in major cities around the world. Pirate Bay is currently on trial for “promoting other people’s infringements of copyright laws,” facing up to two years in prison and over $10M in fines (more info..)
On Feb. 22nd, FAT Lab members will load USB thumbdrives and other portable media devices with every single Academy Award nominated movie. Rewards Party attendees should bring their own thumbdrives & hard disks to freely fileshare every Best Picture nominee, Best Supporting Actress, Best Screenplay, et al… sneakernet style.
As a courtesy to their prosecutors we will share King Kong in diskette too!

I think hackerspaces around the world are trying to make a good name. The try to establish once again that hackers do good for the society. I think sharing copyrighted movies this way is on the edge.
What about that bullshit in your about page? That F.A.T. members support open licenses and try to enrich public domain etc.
That’s about my opinion :-P
