The alleged owner of KickassTorrents was arrested last week, to be extradited from Poland to the United States. The site - at least the original version - remains offline. In this episode of STEAL THIS SHOW, we invite Peter Sunde, co-founder of The Pirate Bay, Andrew Norton, chairman of the US Pirate Party, and Gary Fung, founder of Isohunt, to discuss this critical event, its significance for the torrent community, and implications for the world of P2P. We discuss the propriety of extraordinary rendition for copyright crime, the question of how much money pirates are really making, and how the anti-P2P agenda is leading to further decentralisation. Kickass Torrents, we learn, is just one head of the many-headed hydra.

European Regulators are about to decide whether to give big telecoms corporations the power to influence what we can (and can’t) do online. In this emergency episode of STEAL THIS SHOW, Thomas Lohninger of Save The Internet and Holmes Wilson of Fight For The Future explain how practices like traffic management, zero rating and specialised services threaten P2P, VPNs and, more generally, our access to a free and open internet.
