Q. Why is your film copyrighted?
A. So that you can steal it. Of course there's more to say about this, but we're sure you can figure it out.
Q. How many downloads have you had of STEAL THIS FILM?
A. Someone recently told us 5 million, which was nice to imagine -- but we put the number closer to 2.7m. We're not sure how many viewers there are for each download, or how many people re-distribute STEAL THS FILM using disks and local networks. But we estimate conservatively at 1.2 distributions for each download and 1.5 viewers for each copy, so...
Q. How many people have seen STEAL THIS FILM?
A. About 4.86m, which is about 48.6 times as many as we ever imagined.
Q. Where do you get these numbers from?
A. We obtain these figures from looking at torrent downloads from the major Bittorrent tracker at The Pirate Bay, and our own logs. (Although our own server is not, by far, the most popular place to obtain the torrents from.)
Q. Did you make a lot of money out of STEAL THIS FILM I?
A. No. To be honest we didn't even make enough to make STEAL THIS FILM II, but here's hoping for the future!
Q. I want to show STF (1 or 2) at my film festival: can you send me a DVD / Beta Tape / Laserdisc / VHS / 12" record....
A. We'd really, really, rather not. It's not that we don't respect your festival, and we WOULD love it if you show the film, and it's not that we think we're special, and and we really appreciate your attention. It's just that we don't have an office, and we don't have a Beta deck, and you CAN just download the film from our site and it is IS HD quality and really, isn't it TIME you learned how to use Bittorrent anyway?
Q. I want to buy (STF I or STF II) for something. Do you own it?
STF II is completely 'cleared' and you can buy it for any territory. STF I is a different kettle of fish, it's not at all cleared and you probably don't want to have anything to do with it.
Q. Do you have a sales agent?
A. We're currently negotiating with a sales agent, more on that soon.
Q. What's in the surprise gift-pack?
A. It's a surprise.
