Sicko Pirated, Weinsteins Feel Queasy

Former Fisbbowler Claude Brodesser-Akner regales Ad Age readers with the Weinsteins’ collective woes over Sicko. Michael Moore’s documentary has been pirated, and is being downloaded all over the ‘net. In fact, Claude did it himself. Come and get him, coppers.

Moore’s big worry isn’t that the Feds are going to confiscate his film, but rather who’ll pay to see it now?

A number of commenters point out that downloading movies before the release date isn’t exactly breaking news. Scofflaws.
