Submission + - Michael Moore Boosts Piracy of "SiCKO"-- H

remove office writes: "Self-described muck-raking filmmaker Michael Moore has embraced an internet leak of his new health care documentary "SiCKO," even before the film hits theaters on June 29th. Moore, who has been a harsh critic of the MPAA in the past, said "I'm just happy that people get to see my movies. I'm not a big supporter of the copyright laws in this country." He also said piracy ultimately helps artists, and recalled how he was introduced to one of his favorite bands (The Clash), after somebody gave him a pirated casette tape (he says he later bought all their albums and attended paid to attend their concerts). Still, Moore hoped people would see the film in theaters anyways: "I wanted to do something for your laptop or your iPod, I would go do that. But I've chosen obviously to make things that I want seen on a big screen.""
