The ‘Yes Men’ release doc on BitTorrent

Self described 'anti-corporate activist-pranksters' The Yes Men have turned to peer-to-peer file sharing site BitTorrent for a release of the Renegade Pictures documentary The Yes Men Fix the World. The Yes Men activists got themselves into legal trouble with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in the film and to avoid cutting that particular scene, The Yes Men released a re-cut version by Vodo, a new U.S. distributor that works with peer-to-peer networks.
